Atkinson & Atkinson was founded in 1989 by John and Dale Atkinson. We have represented several associations of regulatory boards since 1965 affording us the opportunity to work in a voluminous number of areas involving association and regulatory law. Much of our knowledge concerning associations and association law stems from our attendance and presentations at meetings of our clients and others.
In addition to our association representations, our firm generally engages in the corporate/commercial practice of the law. We represent several close corporations and, accordingly, we have had exposure to a multitude of corporate matters including contracts, corporate tax matters, minutes, and annual reports. We are also engaged very extensively in estate planning, estate administration, trusts, and all tax matters arising therefrom.
