Mary Ford

Mary Ford is a paralegal in Nixon Peabody’s Private Clients group. Mary’s areas of concentration include estate and trust administration.

What do you focus on?

I focus on preparing federal and state estate tax returns and gift tax returns. I also support attorneys in opening and closing probate estates, including preparing inventories, accountings and status reports. I assist in the distribution of trust assets, preparing fiduciary income tax returns and trustee succession agreements.

What do you see on the horizon?

I see continued growth in this practice area consistent with the growth in the aging population and the potential of significant changes in estate tax law.
