Overview

Growing up in a small town in the Midwest, Amelia Campbell learned to relate to all types of people and to be a good listener. Her clients have described her as “professional, intelligent, organized, responsive, detailed, efficient and approachable.” 

Amelia’s practice concentration includes estate planning, estate and trust administration, and business succession planning. She counsels clients on a wide range of financial issues involving federal taxation, preservation of wealth, family limited partnerships, insurance planning, charitable planning, and estate planning considerations that affect closely-held businesses. She has experience drafting gift agreements for significant charitable contributions.

Outside the office, Amelia likes to watch her son play hockey, attend Tampa Bay Lightning games, kayak, hike in the Colorado and North Carolina mountains, and explore the United States and Europe.
