Estate Planning / Trust Administration Practice

Mrs. Singh has exclusively focussed her practice in Estate Planning and Trust Administration for her entire legal career.  Mrs. Singh has handled thousands of cases from simple to extremely complex, high net-worth family estates.

History

Prior to Co-Founding her firm, Mrs. Singh has held positions at both estate planning firms and large tax and accounting firms, including Pricewaterhouse Coopers, LLP. Her background in business and foundation in taxes and tax law gives her a distinct advantage in estate planning, because so much of estate planning involves tax law and management of finances.
