Scott Butterfield

Firm Management/Client Advisor

I love partnering with my clients, and the opportunities for getting to know them and their families on a very deep level. I have worked with many of them since their (now adult) children were young. Working with one client, we recently completed a generational transfer of wealth the first steps of which began over 20 years ago. The plan was complex, involving several trusts, a family partnership and multiple generations. We have been with the client to help guide them throughout this plan and the end-result was what the client had hoped for when the journey began. The best part for me is I get to begin an exciting new chapter with next generation family members.
