Private client and trust work is an intimate business, where financial and personal considerations are inextricably entwined. Now more than ever, wealthy individuals and families need legal advisers whose judgment and experience they can rely on for the protection of their assets and their privacy. They need attorneys whose advice they trust, with whom they feel at ease and in whom they are willing to place their confidence. Such respect and confidence must be earned.
