If a legal or tax controversy arises, our tax attorneys help our clients resolve disputes and audits through negotiated settlements, mediation, arbitration, and, if necessary, litigation.
Our group consists of 24 estate, trust and tax attorneys, several of whom are certified by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization as specialists in tax law and/or estate and trust law. Two estate attorneys are Fellows of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC), and members of the group have served as adjunct professors at universities throughout the United States, and have lectured extensively on estate planning law, tax law, and related topics.
Attorneys from other practice areas, including corporate and employee benefits law, often assist the trusts and estates attorneys when designing a comprehensive program to meet specific business objectives. Our wealth management lawyers also work closely with accountants, insurance professionals, and trust officers to develop coordinated estate and business plans.
We also offer significant experience in related areas, including corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, real estate development, employment law, and executive compensation and employee benefits plans. The nonprofit law practice is national in scope and includes providing counsel to and establishing charitable foundations and other tax-exempt entities and trusts.
