David Wheeler Newman

I provide highly personalized tax and estate planning counsel to families, with some relationships spanning decades into the next generation of those families.

As chair of my law firm's charitable sector practice, I represent foundations, donors and charities in negotiation and drafting of gift agreements to establish endowments, construct facilities and fund programs, including provisions covering restrictions on the use of funds, conditions to performance obligations and donor recognition through naming opportunities.
