David Price Brings Top-notch Business Litigation and Counseling Experience to Mediation.com


Roseville, California (PRWEB) January 03, 2014

David Price is well known as a highly successful attorney who lets nothing interfere with his dedication both to his clients and to the legal and civic community in which he works. In a move designed to make him more accessible to potential disputants, Mr. Price recently announced his membership in the fast-growing online mediation network, Mediation.com.

I pride myself on my accessibility to clients, said Mr. Price. Ours is very much a customer service business environment and lawyers, like all professionals, must be responsive to the needs and interests of those around us. Whether I am working for large multi-state business clients or local individuals with highly private and confidential needs, it is the personalized attention to detail which clients both demand and deserve. I also keep in mind that not every case is going to lead to highly adversarial litigation and nor should it. Sometimes mediation is the best answer, and I am always prepared to expedite mediation on behalf of my clients if I believe it is the best strategy for the resolution of their cases.

As a business attorney, Mr. Price maintains a practice almost equally divided between litigation and transactional matters. His practice deals with a wide spectrum of legal fields including real estate, personal injury, contract, construction and estate administration as well as the formation of corporations, limited liability companies and partnerships. Mr. Price handles trial as well as appellate proceedings. Additionally, he serves as an arbitrator and a mediator for the Sacramento and Placer County Superior Courts and is outside general counsel for the NBAs Sacramento Kings.

A 1979 Graduate of King Hall School of Law at the University of California, Davis, Mr. Price worked first as an associate and then a partner in local law firms before establishing his own firm in 1993. He is admitted to practice in California and is a member of the business and litigation sections of the State Bar of California.

Next Generation Trust Services Prepares to Celebrate 10th Anniversary in Business with Community Outreach Programs and Charitable Giving


Roseland, NJ (PRWEB) December 30, 2013

In 2014, Next Generation Trust Services, LLC in Roseland, N.J. will enter its tenth year in usiness serving investors who self-direct their retirement plans. Founded in 2004, Next Generation has grown from startup to holding nearly half a billion dollars in assets today, offering comprehensive account administration and transaction support for self-directed accounts; these include IRAs, SIMPLE and SEP IRAs, HSAs, Coverdell Education Accounts, and solo 401K plans.

I started the company out of my own desire to make real estate investments within my retirement accounts but being unable to find someone to help me make those transactions, said founder and CEO Jaime Raskulinecz, who is also a certified property manager, licensed real estate broker, and a long-time real estate investor. After doing my own research into the administration of self-directed retirement plans, I was inspired to start my own firm to help others build their retirement portfolios with nontraditional investments.

In honor of its tenth anniversary and the companys success, Next Generation Trust Services will start a nonprofit foundation in 2014 to support charitable organizations and programs that have special meaning to Raskulinecz and her staff. Raskulinecz said that the formation of a foundation will enable the firm to better formalize its philanthropic endeavors company-wide.

It is important to all of us here to help nonprofit organizations continue their good work, and to support those in need in our communities. We look forward to putting together some charitable initiatives through our foundation in 2014.

A History of Growth and Service

Next Generation Trust Services was originally founded under a different name as part of a national network of third-party administrators of self-directed retirement accounts. Within five years, Raskulinecz built the company from start-up to over $ 150 million in holdings. She decided to break away from the national network to start her own truly independent firm and in 2011 the company emerged as Next Generation TS, LLC, an independently owned and operated corporation that currently holds nearly $ 500 million in assets.

Next Generation Trust Services has undergone a complete corporate rebranding, updated its website, and upgraded office technology to provide greater security and efficiency for its clients and staff. It recently launched an in-house education program to provide continuing education courses and a reference library to its employees so they may better serve clients. All employees are cross-trained to provide immediate and effective customer service, which, combined with the conveniences of Next Generations online tools, is central to the companys success.

Account holders of self-directed retirement accounts make all their own investment decisions; Next Generation Trust Services executes the transactions, manages all the mandatory paperwork and report filing, and ensures its clients are investing within IRS guidelines. Self-direction allows for a much broader array of investment types including non-publicly traded alternative assets; these include residential and commercial real estate, precious metals, commercial paper, mortgages, hedge funds, and much more.

Were so appreciative of our clients support and of Next Generations steady growth through the years; giving back to the community is a powerful way for us to express that appreciation, said Raskulinecz.
