  • Estate Planning
The firm is committed to providing you with quality estate planning resources. Our objective is to familiarize you with all the existing options available. When you visit or call our office, we want you to feel comfortable discussing the important issues, which concern both you and your family. We want to arm you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your and your family’s future. Our years of experience in representing clients in varied areas of business planning and litigation, have provided our Attorneys with a unique perspective and understanding of what it takes to protect their clients and their families.   This philosophy is reflected in our approach to estate planning and the many options we offer.
 
If you have a well-drafted estate plan in place, you will ensure that your estate passes to whom you want, when you want, and is carried out in the manner you have chosen. You can rest assured that your family will not have to endure the public process and costly unnecessary matter of probate. The government will not be able to take what you have spent a lifetime to build.
 
Through the use of Living Trusts, Wills (simple and complex), Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, Irrevocable Trusts, Family Limited Partnerships and Charitable Gifting Strategies, the Firm helps families preserve wealth for future generations, minimize estate taxes, and avoid the expense and the nightmare of probate.
  • Legacy Wealth Planning
 Legacy Wealth Planning is a novel and non-traditional addition to estate planning. It is a more holistic approach. We help clients preserve not only their financial wealth and their legacy, but in addition, their life stories and family heirlooms, for future generations. Our non-traditional planning methods include special provisions and protections in Living Trusts, Wills and many other instruments. We consider and prepare documents for the many issues now facing the American family, such as protecting assets in the case of remarriage after death of the first spouse and protecting beneficiaries from a possible future divorce.
  • Litigation
 Mr. Gershberg has successfully litigated many cases in state and federal courts throughout the state of Maryland, as well as being admitted pro hac vice (on a temporary basis) to represent clients in the states of New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Virginia.
 
The Firm has often championed the cause of “the little guy.” Mr. Gershberg has litigated against the State of Maryland, the Maryland State Police, City of Baltimore, Baltimore County, banks and major insurance companies. Through court decisions and settlements the Firm has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of its clients. Our immigration litigation against the federal government has helped unite families, obtain Naturalization (Citizenship) and secure legal permanent residence (“Green Card” status) for business owners, physicians, dentists, clergymen, mothers and fathers.
  •  Business
 The Firm represents businesses in many industries including health care, hospitality, restaurant, automotive, construction, fitness and service companies. We make certain that the proper legal entity is chosen and maintained for the protection of its ownership and clientele. We strive to meet the needs of all aspects of a business. The Firm prepares appropriate instruments from the initial Articles, By-Laws and Minutes to complex Stockholders Agreements, Operating Agreements, and Partnership Agreements. We negotiate Leases, Finance Agreements and Employment Agreements. Our legal acumen and breadth of experience provides support for the local entrepreneurs as well as the larger corporation. 
  • Immigration
 The U.S. is a nation of immigrants. Our office has always been sensitive to the role immigration plays in local as well as national economies. The Firm was practicing immigration law before it became a necessity of our global market. The Firm focuses on employment based immigration but is just as versed in family based immigration as well as asylum. We work with consular posts, customs and border patrol and the USCIS to facilitate the entry of temporary non-immigrant workers and the unification of family members. We prepare petitions for all visa types, including students, fiancés, professional workers, investors, managers and executives, artists, athletes and persons with specialized knowledge. We also litigate immigration matters involving Naturalization, Cancellation of Removal, Asylum, Withholding and Convention against Torture.
