John Loalbo 337x294.jpg

Mr. Loalbo focuses his practice on probate litigation, trust and estate planning and administration and federal and state tax controversies.  Mr. Loalbo's probate litigation experience, a growing area of practice, combines his almost 40 years of experience as a litigator with his extensive knowledge of trusts and estates and related tax consequences. He draws on his familiarity with the unique rules, procedures and substantive law involved with probate litigation, along with his comprehensive tax knowledge, to achieve his clients' objectives, whether those objectives be in probate litigation or in trusts and estate planning and administration.

Practicing on a national basis, Mr. Loalbo brings a distinct skill set to the Firm. In addition to his experience with litigation and trust and estate planning, Mr. Loalbo holds an LL.M in Taxation. In the courtroom, this multi-faceted background enables Mr. LoaIbo to spot the substantive and procedural deficiencies in an adversary's case and use it to his client's advantage. By recognizing the precise questions to ask and the correct answers those questions should elicit, he can create a basis on which to discredit an expert's testimony or even disqualify that expert from testifying in the first place.

Mr. Loalbo's combined skill set also proves invaluable when counseling clients on sophisticated trusts and estate issues, including related tax ramifications and controversies. By anticipating commonly litigated issues, he can recommend estate planning and administration options that would reduce the likelihood of his clients having to contend with such litigation in the future.

While attending Boston University School of Law for his LL.M., Mr. Loalbo was on the staff of the Boston University Journal of Tax Law. He was also on the staff of the Canadian-American Law Review while at Gonzaga University School of Law pursuing his J.D.

Mr. Loalbo has authored several publications on trusts and estates, lectured at seminars and has been quoted in a number of professional publications on related matters.
