Mentors: “My father, Frank W. ‘Bo’ Rogers Jr. was the consummate role model and mentor. A man of the highest integrity, humility, and loyalty, he cared deeply not only about his clients’ legal problems but about them as individuals. While incredibly dedicated to his legal practice and his family, he also strongly encouraged involvement in bar activities and giving back to one’s community. Malcolm P. ‘Mac’ Friddell, has also been instrumental in the development of my career. Through the years, he has shared his wealth of experience as a trusts and estates lawyer with me and demonstrates compassion, loyalty and selflessness on a daily basis.”
Have your clients benefitted from the elimination of the “death tax” in Virginia?
“Yes. Beneficiaries of estates that would otherwise have incurred Virginia estate taxes and received no credit against federal estate taxes have been helped by the repeal of the Virginia estate tax as there are more assets that can pass through the estate to the beneficiaries.”
