    Charles ("Chess") and I have known each other for over twenty years. He is a "lawyer's lawyer": the sort of attorney whose encyclopedic knowledge and tremendous work ethic benefit not only his clients, but the people who practice with him. I also personally know him to have the very highest ethical standards, and to be a person whom I would not hesitate to entrust with my legal needs, not only regarding estate planning, but in any area in which he offered his assistance.
