ACT is pleased to have George Reitnour serving as our Trust Counsel and we believe you will find George and our other TA’s to be valued resources for your firm and those you serve.
George was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar Association in 1982 after completing his J.D. at Duquesne University of Law in 1982. For seventeen years, George practiced law in southeastern Pennsylvania emphasizing estate planning and administration. During that time, George also focused on elder law, real estate and business law as well as work with non-profit organizations. While practicing law, George co-founded Reitnour, Mumma & Schwartz in 1984, then incorporated Cornerstone Lawyers, LTD in 1985.
These initial seventeen years laid the foundation for the next seventeen years of George’s career as Vice President with National Penn Investors Trust Company and Branch Banking & Trust Company (B.B. & T.). George administered over $250 million in accounts and provided expertise on a variety of trust-relate areas including: retirement planning and tax law; fiduciary law; charitable gifting; real estate and business law; as well as elder law. George was influential in the development of power to adjust and unitrust in order to deploy total return investing. He also provided advice to co-workers on macro level issues such as the Principal and Interest Act, Medicare D and the Uniform Trust Act.
In 2017, George joined ACT as a Trust Administrator and quickly became a critical and valued Trust Administrator. His legal and trust related experience has provided both ACT and our beneficiaries with a well verse and seasoned TA. George works with some of the most challenging and diverse trusts, where his experience is vital. His knowledge and practice has been a valued resource for attorneys seeking to establish trusts for clients, especially for those with complicated funding mechanisms. Today, as ACT Trust Counsel, George provides his extensive legal and trust experience in support of those we serve.
George’s passion is to positively impact and enhance the lives of individuals with special needs, mental health issues and those who have been impacted by catastrophic events. His compassion and dedication is apparent in his work with beneficiaries and their attorneys as he seeks to establish vehicles that will provide financial stability and peace of mind for caregivers and families.
George and the team of outstanding TA’s here at ACT look forward to working with you in establishing and administering trusts that will provide a financial platform to enhance your client’s life.
