Patrick D. Newton Overview

Attorney Patrick D. Newton practices in our Hendersonville, North Carolina office.  His practice ranges from sophisticated estate tax planning for high net worth clients to providing pro bono service through Pisgah Legal Services. 

Mr. Newton took on the challenge of three step-daughters (Rhiannon, Alyssandra & Adriana) when he married Amy.  A few years later, they celebrated the birth of another daughter, McKinley.  This gives Mr. Newton a first-hand perspective on the estate planning needs of complex families. 

Mr. Newton enjoys the challenge of designing tax efficient wealth preservation strategies, including sophisticated trusts and business entities.
