TAX/ESTATE PLANNING WINNER
GRAHAM D. HOLDING JR., Robinson, Bradshaw & Hinson PA, Charlotte
I am a member of the professional advisers cabinet of the Foundation For The Carolinas, a nonprofit corporation that helps individuals, families, nonprofits and corporations make a positive impact on their communities. As a public charity, the foundation offers favorable tax treatment for gifts and a variety of giving methods to help people achieve their charitable goals. It works closely with more than 500 professional advisers in the Charlotte region to offer services, including assistance with research, document samples, customized calculations, personalized presentations and attendance at client meetings.
Vita: Born Dec. 15, 1936, in Charlotte; bachelor’s from UNC Chapel Hill and law degree from University of Virginia; wife and two sons.
What he’d be if not a lawyer: I would like to have been a writer.
Memorable case: As a young attorney, I represented an indigent defendant in a criminal case with an outcome that convinced me that trial work was not what I wanted to do.
Passions: My family, hunting, fishing, traveling, tomato gardening and working out.
Favorite place: The Caribbean.
Recent reading: A World on Fire by Amanda Foreman. It’s a lengthy but interesting account of Britain’s role in the Civil War.
Don’t ask him to: Do the laundry or load the dishwasher.
