We love talking about building strong financial foundations on Rise Up Radio, especially to empower you in giving back to your community. This week's guests, Scott Ingold and Rebecca Briskin of Higgs Fletcher & Mack, challenged us to consider our financial legacy through estate planning and trust administration, which protects our loved ones from the undesirable process of probate.
Prior to joining Higgs Fletcher & Mack, Ms. Briskin was an associate attorney with a local trusts and estates firm, where she advised her clients, professional and non-professional fiduciaries, in a variety of matters from initial consultation through completion. Ms. Briskin has successfully settled contested matters through the Superior Court’s Mandatory Settlement Conference Program, Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s Probate Mediation Program, and through private mediation. Outside of court, Ms. Briskin finds great satisfaction in counseling her estate planning and trust administration clients while establishing a trusting and ongoing relationship with them.
Scott Ingold, recently named a 2015 Rising Star by Super Lawyers, comes to Higgs from Stutz Artiano Shinoff & Holtz where he tried jury trials, bench trials and binding arbitrations in high-exposure cases involving business disputes, employment disputes, wage and hour claims as well as wrongful death. Ingold received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Wheaton College and obtained his Juris Doctor from California Western School of Law in 2007 where he achieved numerous honors and awards, including ranking in the top 10 percent of his class, earning the top grade in Gift and Estate Tax, Trial Practice and Insurance Law and Litigation, winning first place in the 2006 Gill Oral Advocacy Competition and securing second place in the 2006 University of Oklahoma Indian Law Writing.
Sherman Sadsarin, our Hero of the Week, joined us to share his journey of opening the boxing gym and how he has been able to serve his community through his business at Maxwell's Boxing. When faced with an uncertain job market, Sherman decided to use his personal passion of boxing to better his community, especially serving veterans and youth needing a positive place to grow. Thanks for your work Sherman and for rising up!
