Principal Paul Riekhof has been named one of Montgomery County’s top estate lawyers in a feature article that appears in the July-August issue of Bethesda Magazine.
Paul was one of only 17 attorneys named by the magazine in its feature titled “Top Estate Lawyers.” He is a repeat recipient of this prestigious honor, having received it when the magazine last did a review of estate lawyers in 2011 as well.
“I am honored to be chosen on this list and to be selected from among a great many fine estate lawyers,” Paul said.
Paul takes a personal approach to estate planning. He strives to gain an understanding of his clients, their goals and their needs in order to develop a plan that reflects who the clients are through the wills, trusts and other documents that are developed for them. He is happy to visit his clients at their homes, hospitals or nursing homes to make the process easier for them.
Paul is a shareholder and member of the Executive Committee of Joseph, Greenwald & Laake, which the article refers to as “a regional powerhouse with offices in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties.”
At Joseph, Greenwald & Laake, Paul’s experience includes representing and advising clients concerning all aspects of estate tax planning, wealth preservation, family business preservation, gift and charitable gift planning, buy-sell agreements, establishing special needs trusts and discretionary trusts to conserve assets for the benefit of disabled individuals, establishing irrevocable trusts to remove insurance and other assets from estates, and establishing revocable trusts for probate avoidance and disability planning.
