Williams Mullen is pleased to announce that the firm’s Estate Planning: Private Client & Fiduciary Services practice received a “Band 2” rating in the 2018 Chambers High Net Worth Guide for Virginia. Farhad Aghdami, the firm’s Richmond Managing Partner, was rated a “Band 1” attorney, the highest rating available.

The Estate Planning practice, which includes 10 attorneys throughout Virginia, was recognized for providing a “broad array of trust and estate services” and offering “in-depth advice on tax matters.” The guide commended the team for their level of service; one source said they are “the most responsive of any firm I've worked with." Another client said, "they are trusted advisers to our whole family and always give great advice. They provide a comprehensive service." A third source said, "They are very collaborative and always work to include third parties. This is a real benefit to the client as they benefit from all their advisers acting with one voice."

Aghdami has more than 20 years of experience assisting clients with wealth transfer tax planning, business succession planning, income tax planning for individuals and businesses and fiduciary litigation. One source for the guide called him “one of the best trust and estate lawyers in the Mid-Atlantic” region, while another referred to him as their “key go-to adviser for all private wealth and generational succession matters."
