Philip A. Wagler: I practice in a couple of different areas one is the estate planning and administration and the other is the general corporate and business section. I work with clients in a variety of different ways – whether it’s preparing their estate plan, or putting in place their power of attorney and other related documents for their lifetime needs. Also, estate administration once a loved one has passed helping and assisting with the administration of their assets and passing those on to the next generation. On the corporate side I work with succession planning, helping business owners pass their interests on to their children or grandchildren and determining tax efficient ways to do so and ways that work for their family planning. I also help entrepreneurs set up companies and get in place different agreements that will help them grow and focus on the efforts at hand to grow their business. The clients I work with are really varied. On the estate planning side I work with young couples who are just married and have their first children and are worried about guardianship should something happen to the two of them. To older couples that have significant assets and are concerned about how to pass those tax efficiently to the next generation. On the corporate side I work with a variety of different business whether its older established companies or younger entrepreneurial individuals who are just starting their companies. My favorite thing about being a lawyer is when you’ve assisted a client through a process and you meet with them to either sign the documents – whether it’s an estate plan or you know the in incorporation or organization documents for their company or corporation – it’s fun to be able to be involved in that process to know that you’ve helped them move forward and achieve a goal that they had.
