Partner

Recognized as one of the top estate planning attorneys in the nation, Ed Ahrens has represented some of America’s wealthiest individuals and families during his 40-year career. Prior to the formation of Ahrens DeAngeli Law Group, Ed led the estate planning practices of several highly respected law firms, and, as a director at Arthur Andersen, was a member of the accounting firm’s national family wealth planning specialty team. Ed is an accomplished author and speaker and has served on numerous boards of public charities and private foundations. We have been fielding a few questions about the possibility of Ed retiring from the practice. Three words: Weekend at Bernie’s.
