In addition to serving businesses and government institutions, from the largest to the smallest, Black & Gerngross attorneys have built a thirty-year reputation using their specialized skills to provide superior representation to individual clients. Due to the nature of these engagements, and our clients’ need for absolute discretion, we do not specifically describe our many past and recent successes.

Our Personal Client Services team brings its expertise to bear in the following areas:

Personal Client Services

Estate Planning and Administration

Planning for our clients’ families and businesses, including for disabled children and adults, is an important and enriching focus of our client relationships. Our attorneys provide a full range of estate planning and wealth transfer services, from the straightforward to the complex.

Our services include the drafting of wills, revocable and irrevocable trusts, life insurance trusts, durable powers of attorney, and healthcare powers of attorney. In addition, we regularly advise clients on asset protection, business succession, family gifting, charitable giving and tax planning strategies and related legal documentation.

We take the time to learn about the details of each client’s finances and family relationships, and every estate plan we create is individually tailored to the client’s specific personal goals. Our estate plans preserve wealth and avoid federal and state death taxes to the greatest extent possible, without introducing needless complexity or losing sight of each client’s individual goals.

If you desire more information about our specific expertise in the above areas, please contact one of our attorneys for a more complete description of our background and capabilities.
