JOHN T. TOMPKINS, III
After 42 years of experience with the firm, John brings an especially refined skill for estate planning and administration. His philosophy in working with estates and trusts has always been to take what is complex and make it understood by the client. By accomplishing this goal, John prepares the client to be well equipped in carrying out the estate plan which best meets the needs for that individual. Having always been fascinated by the uniqueness of family asset bases and the uniqueness of individuals generally, John works tirelessly with his clients to provide them the best possible solution to maintain their assets.
John is totally committed to the team approach to estate planning. Not only must there be a close working relationship between the attorney and the client, but also an open communication between accountants, insurance agents, financial planners, and bank trust officers when a client is a trust department. Since today's clients want to have their financial planning in the hands of professionals, John will not interfere with the independence of the client to choose their team. Instead he stresses open communication and coordination between the entire team of professionals in order to safely and prudently guide the client. John's ultimate concern with his clients is their protection and their independence.
