Practice Focus

Maurice Offit is an estate planning and asset protection planning attorney. Mr. Offit counsels a large number of clients who share an interest in minimizing estate taxes and asset protection from the claims of creditors.

 

Points of Distinction

Mr. Offit has more than thirty years of experience with a focus on estate and trust administration, estate planning, and asset protection plans for his clients. While no two plans are exactly alike, Mr. Offit makes sure that they have one thing in common; they meet with the client's satisfaction and approval. Mr. Offit approaches planning from the client's point of view and has the unique ability of understanding what the client needs to consider in formulating the plan. Clients give high marks to Mr. Offit's communication style; in contrast to many other practitioners, Mr. Offit explains technical planning concepts in terms that clients can understand. Unlike many other attorneys, Mr. Offit will quote a fixed fee for preparing your estate planning documents once clients present him with all the necessary information. At the end of the estate planning process, Mr. Offit provides his clients with a well organized binder including all necessary documents. In 2006, Mr. Offit was named as one of Maryland's Legal Elite by Baltimore's Smart CEO magazine.
