I am Richard A. Sarner of Zeldes, Needle & Cooper, P.C., and I put clients’ needs first when asked to administer an estate or trust. Complex estates and trusts demand attorneys with experience and attention to detail to administer them. With tax concerns, accounting issues and the proper distribution of the estate’s assets at stake, I will make sure my clients’ wishes are fulfilled and the estate and trusts will be properly administrated.
I realize the importance of transparency and responsible financial management. Working with accountants and financial experts as needed, I seek to preserve stability rather than pursue investment strategies that may jeopardize a trust. My office prepares annual reports and tax returns for trusts, working with beneficiaries when necessary.

I tailor each client’s estate plan to his or her expressed wishes. Whether they are concerned with asset management or making sure their favorite charity receives an endowment, I will work with my client to make sure his or her needs are met.
