Edward D. Bender


Ed practices primarily in the areas of estate planning, taxation and estate & trust administration. The estate planning area commonly includes planning for business owners, and Ed counsels them on their succession planning issues as well as their general corporate matters. Ed advises individuals, banks and trust companies in their roles as fiduciaries for probate estates and private trusts. He has extensive knowledge of the four areas of taxation that are of concern to people who are planning their estate: the estate tax, the income tax, the gift tax, and the generation-skipping transfer tax. Ed’s clientele is diverse, ranging from high net worth individuals considering a Domestic Asset Protection Trust, to parents with minor children who need a Contingent Trust for Minors, to persons who have a non-U.S. citizen spouse needing a Qualified Domestic Trust.

Ed has written and lectured on these topics for community groups and at continuing legal education seminars for other attorneys. Ed attended Northern Kentucky Salmon P. Chase College of Law where he was a member of the Law Review editorial board. He served in the offices of two local U.S. Congressmen while an undergrad at the University of Cincinnati. Martindale Hubbell/LexisNexis has recognized Edward as AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated, the highest possible rating in both legal ability and ethical standards.
