Dan is an easy choice where your client has no candidate in the family, or simply wants to avoid an institutional trustee. Dan also is a competitive candidate for other clients. Having successfully administered through difficult situations in a range of trust types, Dan has developed a unique preparedness program. The program builds, enhances and implements your estate plan, and is available whether or not Dan is named as fiduciary. With his pro-active focus on what will be successful for both the grantor and the beneficiary, Dan may be the best option to make sure your documents aren’t at the center of a dispute down the road.
I worked with Dan to resolve a sticky situation involving a single pot trust for the benefit of two children who lost their father and who have different mothers. Dan handled the situation with intelligence, grace, clarity. Because of his efforts and approach, we were able to reach an accord with all interested persons, helped to preserve family relations, and limit the expense of future administration. Dan is a top shelf trustee and advisor.
Dan has worked as a trustee for my family for over fourteen years. He has negotiated a real estate sale for multiple trusts to multiple buyers. He has negotiated an employment agreement for me. He holds a mortgage in trust for a family member. He does multiple trust quarterly tax filings as well as record keeping for multiple trust tax returns. He handles a total of 8 trusts and one six partner family partnership. He coordinates Life insurance policies for us as well. He is honest and has always been helpful as a confidant. I have referred Dan to a number of close friends and will continue to do so.
Dan has a knack for guiding people in the right direction and making them feel as if it were their idea all along. His collaborative and collegial style is refreshing and very necessary for the type of work that he does. I had a pleasure working with Dan on a trust matter recently and highly recommend him.
Dan Felix has an uncanny ability to understand the inner workings of family. His biggest passion is to find the most optimum plan to transition a family from one generation to the next keeping the joy and values intact.
DANIEL is knowledgeable about trust matters, and understands the roles and responsibilities of the trustee. He strikes a good rapport with trust beneficiaries, as well as with their other professional advisers.
