Best Law Firms - Employee Benefits Law  

Pension and Employment Benefits Law

It is important for businesses of all sizes, as well as individuals, to obtain legal counsel on the development and administration of pension, employment and retirement plan.

Frazer Ryan Goldberg & Arnold LLP is a 2018 Best Law Firms selectee for ERISA Law (Metro Tier 2)

Pension and employment benefits attorney Chuck Whetstine, a Certified Specialist in Tax Law (Arizona Board of Legal Specialization), designs and drafts:

  • qualified retirement plans, including 401(k), profit sharing, money purchase and defined benefit plans

  • non-qualified deferred compensation plans

  • employee benefit and welfare plans

  • cafeteria plans

  •  medical reimbursement plans.

Chuck and his Frazer Ryan colleagues represent the fiduciaries of those plans and other plan professionals with regard to administration issues, tax matters, or implications for property distribution disputes. Similarly, we can counsel plan sponsors and participants with regard to their rights and opportunities, and with regard to the interplay between plan benefits and estate planning.

Chuck is assisted in this important practice area by his associate and daughter, Alissa Whetstine.
