Gideon serves high-net-worth individuals with assets ranging from $5 million to more than $1 billion. His clients include professionals, entrepreneurs, real estate developers and owners, closely-held business owners and directors of publicly-held companies. 

Gideon distinguishes himself from many of his peers in that his estate planning recommendations are integrated with asset protection objectives. By educating his clients on the non-tax benefits available with trusts and other vehicles and how they can be drafted in a flexible manner, his clients can achieve both tax savings and wealth preservation. Such benefits include protection from divorce, creditors or litigation exposure.
