New Member: Michael Blacksburg

Please introduce yourself and welcome new member Michael Blacksburg to the club. Michael was sponsored by Don Stanger. In his own words, here is a some background information on Mr. Blacksburg:

I’m a former solo estate planning attorney turned estate and legacy advisor with Wells Fargo Private Bank.  As a Fiduciary Advisor, I serve the traditional function as a trust officer/advisor for high net worth individuals and family clientele of the Private Bank. In that role, I act as strategic focal point for trust administration on behalf of the Private Bank. I work with the trust creators and the trust beneficiaries to meet the goals of the trust and for the family, as a whole.

I also serve the larger role as a wealth management advisor from the fiduciary point of view. In that role, I work with current client families and prospective client families on regularly evaluating their wealth management needs (estate planning, wealth transfer, specialized asset management, unique beneficiary concerns, philanthropy, family dynamics) and coordinate those investment and fiduciary services the Private Bank offers.

A client thanked me for bringing a soulful approach to the intersection of banking and law and I think that’s an apt description of how I go about things.

My family and I moved here in June 2017 from San Francisco (Yes, I’m a great husband).  My wife, Nicole, and I have an eight year old boy (Sam) and twin 4 year old girls (Margot and Esme).  We live in Hope Valley.
