Baker Donelson advises wealthy individuals and families on a broad range of matters, including estate planning and administration, as well as business succession and charitable planning. One interviewee states: "In my opinion, they have the most expertise in trust and estates in the South East of the US."

A source notes: "They can answer any kind of estate planning or tax question out there. They have a deep team in Jackson." Another source comments: "They know what they are doing. They come up with strategies to accomplish goals creatively and they communicate them very well to clients that do not have expertise in taxation, probate or estate matters."
