I like that my clients are really smart people - and they appreciate candid and open advice and creative thinking.

Stephen A. Good

Steve Good enjoys being an attorney because it gives him the opportunity to read, write and solve puzzles, skills he effectively employs daily as a business, tax and estate planning attorney.

Steve assists our clients with structuring their businesses and negotiating commercial transactions, with an emphasis on advising clients regarding the associated income, estate and gift tax implications.  He also helps families and business owners accomplish their estate planning, succession and wealth preservation objectives in a tax-efficient manner.

A native of Pittsburgh, PA, Steve joined us right after graduating from law school. When he is not at work, Steve enjoys spending time with his wife and three children, and he is an avid college sports fan, especially of University of Miami football and Duke basketball. Occasionally, Steve also plays the trombone in a local R&B band.
