Rhonda Miller is a partner with Dunlap, Bennett & Ludwig, PLLC, working out of their Vienna, Leesburg and Pasadena offices where she concentrates on sophisticated estate planning including special needs trusts, asset protection trusts, spousal lifetime access trusts, charitable remainder trust, qualified small business trusts and other trust used to minimize or eliminate capital gains and estate tax. In addition, she focuses on administering large and complex estates including litigation with respect to those estates and correcting documents to optimize tax efficiencies.
During the early years of her career, Rhonda was a successful litigator in the courtroom, arguing on behalf of clients both large and small. It is both this courtroom experience and her many years in private practice that afford Rhonda a real-world understanding of the issues facing her clients when it comes to asset preservation. Relying on her education, training, and experience, Rhonda takes a holistic approach to safeguarding each client’s personal and business assets in the most tax advantageous manner, while staying consistent with the client’s goals.
What sets Rhonda apart from other attorneys in her field, however, is her friendly, conversational, and accessible style. By building a comfortable rapport with each client, Rhonda is able to explain highly complex areas of law in a manner in which her clients understand. “I like to think of it this way,” she says. “It is my job to put my clients’ needs and desires into words. Those words form the basis for each client’s legal plan. That’s why it is so important to take the time to get to know every client up front. And by staying in touch, I continue to assist my clients with other important matters in their lives.”
Ms. Miller is highly sought after public speaker. She frequently teaches local and national continuing legal education on trusts used for tax planning..
