About Our Firm


The firm was founded in 1990 by Jill M. Cicero.  We practice exclusively in the areas of estate planning, trust and estate administration and related gift and estate tax matters, and our firm has received a Best Lawyers® Tier 1 ranking for Trusts and Estates Law in Rochester, New York from 2011, the initial year of law firm rankings, through 2021. Our firm currently represents approximately 2,000 clients, the majority of whom are high net worth individuals requiring sophisticated estate and tax planning.



We offer a high level of expertise and personal service in a small firm setting. Our role is to assist our clients in making informed decisions about their estate planning, and to then use our technical expertise to implement that planning.  As part of that process, we educate our clients about the complex laws which affect estate planning, the planning choices which are available, and the pros and cons of those choices as they relate to each client’s specific circumstances. One of our strengths is communication:  we listen carefully in order to understand our clients’ wishes and concerns, and we explain clearly the legal concepts and issues which affect our clients. We believe we represent our clients well when we employ our best professional efforts on their behalf, and they understand their options, their decisions and their overall planning.
