Robert B. Vaksman, Esq.

Founding Partner

Robert is among a small group of our country’s most distinguished tax and business law practitioners, having graduated New York University School of Law and obtaining a Master of Laws in Taxation (ranked #1 by US News & World Reports), as well as New York University Stern School of Business (ranked #3 by US News & World Reports). He is licensed to practice in New York and Nevada.

Following graduation, Robert delved into various legal and business projects, providing invaluable strategic expertise in various transactional, adversarial and crisis management situations. Notably, he worked as a Financial Advisor for several years with one of the premier Wall Street brokerage houses; was a member of WealthCounsel® (a collaborative network of more than 1,700 Estate Planning practitioners throughout all fifty states); and was a member of the Nevada Trust & Probate Section. He also co-authored a book entitled, “Estate Planning Strategies. Collective Wisdom. Proven Techniques”, and frequently teaches Attorneys, CPAs, Financial Advisors and Insurance Professionals the importance and techniques of optimal holistic planning strategies for clients.

As a result of his varied experience, Robert realized that, although there are many smart professionals out there, they unfortunately are not always doing “the right thing” for their clients, and they rarely collaborate with their client’s other professionals. What’s worse, many clients do not to communicate with their attorneys primarily due to the onerous nature of hourly billing, leading to a transactional, impersonal and disjointed attorney-client experience.

Knowing that there had to be a better way of providing holistic, meaningful and life-long planning, Robert founded Vaksman Khalfin, PC with the goal of providing Comprehensive Solutions to Families and Businesses. Although the practice began by focusing on all aspects of Estate Planning, Vaksman Khalfin, PC now provides a full suite of legal services in order to assist its clients with the very best personal, financial, legal and business decisions throughout their lifetime.

Robert is married to Dr. Irena Vaksman, with whom he has three beautiful boys; Charlie, Jack and Ethan.
