Linda Engleby concentrates her practice in estate planning and trust and estate administration.

Her counseling includes the design of sophisticated tax sensitive documents, which also recognize the importance of family and business relationships in the lives of her clients. Linda advises clients on the many complex tax issues and intrafamily concerns involved in the transfer of wealth from one generation to the next, and establishes creative, personally tailored plans for each of her clients.

In addition, Linda counsels clients on all aspects of estate and trust administration, including probate, the preparation of estate tax returns, gift tax returns and fiduciary income tax returns, and judicial and nonjudicial accountings.

Linda counsels clients on the resolution of family disputes regarding the interpretation of wills and trusts and the dispersion of family assets in adversarial settings. She represents family members in estate and trust litigation matters. She also counsels corporate and individual Executors, Trustees and Guardians on their fiduciary responsibilities.

Linda forms and advises non-profit organizations and private foundations as to their tax and regulatory obligations. She also works with clients to develop plans for protecting their assets, which usually include the utilization of limited partnerships, limited liability companies and so-called "asset protection" and "spendthrift" trusts.
