Stan’s practice focus these days is fiduciary and related tax matters—both planning and compliance. He began practice in 1970 after graduating (with a lot of sweat equity!) from The University of Alabama with a degree in accounting. He went to law school at night at Woodrow Wilson College of Law and received his JD in 1975.
Stan’s first experience in the area of estate tax work was in 1972, when he prepared his first United States Estate Tax Return (which is still Form 706 now) for the estate of a retired school teacher. Finding that work interesting and challenging, he has continued to toil in that area of taxation since. Stan has been involved with tax planning and compliance for hundreds of estates and trusts over his approximately 50-year career. He has also served as a co-executor and trustee—probably more than is wise—but he has gained insight and wisdom from those experiences.
Stan has been a member of the Atlanta Estate Planning Council since 1973 and has served on the Board of Directors for two terms. His professional memberships include the American Institute of CPAs, Georgia Society of CPAs, Georgia Bar Association, Atlanta Estate Planning Council, and Atlanta Tax Forum.
Stan’s favorite pastime is driving his Kubota tractor in the mountains of North Georgia. He also plays a little golf but admittedly not very well.
