When asked why Cushing decided to go into law, he said:

“I was always fond of games as a child. Law is really just a game with a lot of rules…and once you learn them, you can take advantage of opportunities to accomplish certain outcomes. The tax code is similar, if you know what to do with certain resources, you can transfer them at advantageous rates and avoid tax that might otherwise diminish the value of your estate.”

As a thought-leader in his industry, Cushing remains focused on how changes in rules are impacting his clients. He noted:

“The biggest trend affecting us is the increasing exemption from federal estate and gift tax. Fewer people are focused on estate tax reduction and more and more are looking at how they should dispose their property. What are the values that they should incorporate in those dispositions? How do you help children best? Do you set up a trust for them, do you set up an incentive for them, do you tell them about the wealth you’re leaving them or do you keep it a secret.”
