“I have known Mina Sirkin for seven years.
Mina is a life long learner, who puts the time and effort into staying
on top of current events for estate law. This type of approach is very
important for navigating the current times we are in; massive
volatility in finances with commensurate changes in estate valuations
which is coupled with unknown estate tax laws driven by the recent
changes in government. You need someone who can help you address this
uncertainty, rather than use a business-as-usual approach."
