I know how important it is to make informed financial decisions… protecting all that we’ve accumulated, enjoying our lives today, and transferring our wealth to our heirs and the charities of our choice. With over 30 years of experience, I help people make better money-related decisions, whether it’s by reducing current taxes, protecting assets from being unjustly taken, providing for family heirs and if they're so inclined, helping them optimize their charitable donations. Perhaps the most fulfilling part of my job is when I help families when they have complex trust and estate planning issues, as well as recommending wealth transfer strategies to minimize taxes. I’ve been a speaker and/or panelist at seminars for financial planners, brokers, financial executives and retail investors. For over 20 years I’ve written articles about conservative asset strategies. In my personal life, I’ve been an organizer and co-founder of a Jewish Day School in Great Neck.
