Mr. Milner’s practice is focused on assisting clients plan their financial lives from an income, gift and estate tax perspective.

This often includes helping clients structure complicated business relationships in a manner calculated to reduce income tax consequences. Mr. Milner also helps families develop strategies which will permit them to accumulate wealth and then pass this wealth down to future generations in a practical, tax efficient manner. Mr. Milner represents clients in tax controversies before the Internal Revenue Service and state and local taxing authorities and provides guidance to families in administration of estates and trusts. Prior to starting his legal career, Mr. Milner, who is also a CPA, had a ten year career in the accounting profession. This experience, which included working in the tax practice of both a “Big 4” and a well respected regional accounting firm, enables him to offer his clients uncommon insight into a wide variety of legal and business matters.
