About Altman & Associates
Since opening our doors in 1996, Altman & Associates has been committed to providing superior personal service and legal excellence. We work with our clients and their other trusted advisors to develop and implement individualized, practical and tax effective estate planning strategies and techniques to preserve and transfer wealth. The Altman Team combines our decades of combined knowledge of federal and state, trust, estate, business and tax laws with practical solutions to guide our clients through all areas of the estate planning process.

We also work with counsel licensed in other states, such as New York, Florida, Delaware, Nevada and South Dakota, when our clients have needs specific to laws in other states.
The Altman & Associates Difference
“Law firms are not all alike. At Altman & Associates, we offer the experience of a big firm, with the service of a small firm.” – Gary Altman, Esq.
A boutique law firm, we are committed to a highly personalized, client-centered approach. We understand that estate planning is one of life’s most personal matters. Unlike some firms today, it is our belief that no two clients are alike and that, therefore, there’s no such thing as a “one-size fits all” solution. We take the time to understand our clients and to render comprehensive and creative solutions that are exclusive to the goals, needs and circumstances of each client. We recognize the importance of protecting that which we love, the important people in our lives, the assets we have worked hard to accumulate and our priceless memories, values and individual dreams.
Our outstanding legal team is complimented by use of state of the art technology and infrastructure systems that allows us to be more efficient, more responsive, and a better steward of the personal information we maintain for our clients. Our response time to client inquiries is one business day or less and we provide access to our staff by telephone, e-mail and other forms of instant communication.
