Exciting Developments at VLG


about the 

Jeffrey M. Verdon Law Group, LLP

Dear Friends, Colleagues, and Clients,

The Jeffrey M. Verdon Law Group, LLP (VLG) has dedicated over 40 years to providing the highest level of advanced estate planning with asset protection to a wonderful array of affluent families and successful business owners. While Verdon has no immediate plans to retire, clients are asking who would take over when the boss finally decides to retire. Moreover, clients are asking VLG to provide a more expanded array of legal services, beyond its core practice areas. VLG strives to best serve its client’s needs and set out to align with top legal talent to expand into additional areas of legal services offerings while maintaining the support of our outstanding team. In short, VLG has reached the point where merging with a larger law firm becomes the succession plan for its clients and their families. In the process of merging with a larger firm VLG will be able to expand and provide a broader array of legal services.

Effective December 1, 2022, VLG will become Falcon, Rappaport & Berkman, LLP (FRB), and business will continue as usual for VLG clients with new and expanded legal service capabilities. FRB is based in New York with an established presence in New Jersey, Florida, Colorado and Montana and are looking to open offices in most of the key commercial centers around the United States. 

FRB is a law firm of high-caliber lawyers from elite law schools which provides an array of diverse legal services complementing the specialized comprehensive estate tax planning and risk mitigation services of VLG. FRB is an ideal cultural match with VLG. The FRB attorneys practice with the same degree of dedication, work ethic, and concierge-level client service which has been the hallmark of VLG. FRB also uses a very similar approach to problem-solving by always examining the big picture and offering numerous options.

FRB services include:

  • Tax Law
    • Individual
    • Corporate
  • Estate and Trust Planning
  • Estate Administration and Litigation
  • Asset Protection and Risk Mitigation
    • Business
    • Personal
  • Real Estate
    • Transactions
    • Taxation
    • Litigation
  • Corporate, M&A and Partnerships
  • Web3 and Blockchain
  • Election Law
  • Elder Law
  • Commercial Litigation
  • Trademark and Copyright Law

This strategic merger accomplishes the desires of both firms. It incorporates the ability for VLG to continue providing its specialized services to its valued clients and team members well into the future, while FRB will work directly with VLG to grow the Newport Beach office, adding attorneys and support staff to provide a wider array of services, and expanding its law practice into California and around the western United States. 

There will be more announcements in the coming weeks and months as our firms complete the merger. Expect new and exciting developments to come. To our new and long-time devoted clients and service providers, thank you for your loyalty and support.
