George’s practice is exclusively concentrated in domestic and foreign estate planning, with an emphasis on implementing effective tax reduction strategies, estate, trust and guardianship administration and fiduciary litigation. George advises domestic families and high net worth individuals in implementing advanced wealth transfer techniques, income and transfer tax planning, expatriation planning, business succession planning, as well as representing clients who have complicated family situations in complex estate, trust and guardianship administrations.
