In His Own Words
What do you do at CunninghamLegal?
I practice mostly estate planning. This includes tax planning and wealth planning. My goal is to use cutting edge techniques to preserve as much wealth within my clients’ families as possible.
What is the best talent that you bring to CunninghamLegal Clients?
For one, I do a decent job breaking down complex legal issues into ways everyone can understand. Some attorneys willingly convolute legal subjects to “impress” their clients – this is silly.
Second, I have a background in tax law. I earned my Tax LLM at Loyola Law School. Many estate and wealth planners totally disregard the impact of taxation on their clients. This leads to huge blind spots within estate plans. My clients do not have to worry about that.
