Nearly 25 years ago, McManus & Associates was founded to deliver the highest quality estate planning services that the largest firms promise with the more intimate, personalized relationships that a boutique firm can offer. Since that time, some of the most prominent families in finance, media, academia and medicine — both domestic and international — have relied on the firm to serve as their advisor in wealth and family mission planning.

The cornerstone of its approach, McManus & Associates designed the 10-Step Wealth and Family Values Protection Plan™ to ensure a sanctuary of guidance as family dynamics and the legal environment evolve. For its professional excellence, the legal community has long recognized the firm as preeminent, with Martindale-Hubbell consistently awarding McManus & Associates this highest rating for over 15 years.

“After the initial meeting with John McManus, we loved working with Benjamin Carthew who was extremely well-versed in all nuances of estate planning, showed infinite patience in explaining all aspects of our plan.”

— Ed S.

“In revising my Will, I wanted to change and simplify how I arranged my bequests. John quickly grasped my intentions and communicated them to Ben who hammered them out in my new Will. Again, when I contacted Ben with questions about the changes made, his responses were extremely clear and helpful.”
