Harold Weinstock, the recipient of the Arthur K. Marshall Award in 1966, has practiced law for over 50 years and was the founder of the predecessor of Weinstock, Manion, Reisman, Shore & Newman, one of the premier trusts and estates firms in Los Angeles. Hal received his undergraduate degree from New York University and his law degree from Harvard University Law School. Initially, he represented the United States as a staff attorney for the Securities and Exchange Commission and then the Office of Chief Counsel of the Internal Revenue Service. In addition to being a member of the California State Bar, he is admitted in Connecticut and Illinois and to various federal courts. He is a former Chairman of the predecessor to Beverly Hills Bar Association Trusts and Estates Section, President of the Beverly Hills Estate Planning Council and President of the Estate Counselors’ Forum of Los Angeles, as well as being a member of the American Bar Association and the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel. He is listed in Best Lawyers in America. Over the years, Hal lectured at numerous tax and estate planning conferences, including the U.S.C. and New York University Tax Institutes and taught estate planning for UCLA Extension. Because he was dissatisfied with the quality of texts on the subject, Hal wrote Planning an Estate: A Guidebook of Principles and Techniques, which has gone through four editions. He also has written articles in the Journal of Taxation, Trusts & Estates, and Estate Planning. Hal was honored as a “Super Lawyer” in 2004, 2005 and 2006 by Law and Politics (Los Angeles Magazine).
