Five Goulston & Storrs directors – Mark Balk, Mark Christopher, Andrew Rothstein, Marshall Senterfitt, and Mark Swirbalus – also ranked among the top attorneys in the directory.

Goulston & Storrs was one of only four firms to receive a Band 2 ranking in Private Wealth Law.

In the Private Wealth Disputes category, Mark Swirbalus, co-chair of Goulston & Storrs’ Litigation group, and Marshall Senterfitt received top rankings. According to Chambers, Swirbalus is an “outstanding” trust and estates litigator who is “smart, reasonable and practical, but zealous in representation for clients.” Senterfitt “totally instills confidence” and is “thoughtful and careful and as good a probate and general civil litigator as you will find.”

In the Private Wealth Law category, Mark Christopher was ranked with Chambers noting that he “advocates with heart and energy” in trust and estate administration and fiduciary litigation matters. Andrew Rothstein, who co-chairs the firm’s Private Client & Trust Group, also ranked for his “tax efficient wealth planning for families.” Rothstein is “good at explaining things and following through so the client is sure what they want to do.” Finally, Mark Balk was recognized with Chambers highlighting that his “excellent reputation as a thoughtful advisor to high net worth families is well deserved.”
