Melanie Cuddyre has recently joined the firm as an Associate in the Tax, Trusts, and Estates Group.

Melanie recognizes that every client is different, implementing an individualized approach to the development of an estate and tax plan – avoiding a one-size-fits-all design – and emphasizing the importance of working alongside other professional advisors to ensure all aspects of a well-developed plan are considered.
