Edward Reilly

Sandberg Phoenix & Von Gontard

Ned is presently a Counsel at Sandberg Phoenix and von Gontard, P.C., but boasts a most impressive collection of business cards from prestigious law firms in St. Louis, collected over the past 44 years.  Ned’s professional  practice focus  involves estate, trust, business succession and tax  planning for individual clients, but sadly, with the maturation of a significant portion of his client base, he’s now focusing more and more on probate and post mortem trust administration.  Clients are dying to find out how good he is.  

Ned is a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel,  and has served as an adjunct professor at both the St. Louis University School of Law and in the LLM (Tax) program at the Washington University School of Law. He has served on the board of the St. Louis Estate Planning Counsel, the Probate Steering Committee of the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis, and on the estate planning advisory boards of several local charities, including the St. Louis Art Museum and Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.  He has also served on various committees of the Missouri Bar Probate and Trust Law Committee, and is old enough to remember serving with Leo Eickhoff and John Sullivan.  Ned has been listed for a number of years in The Best Lawyers in America and Missouri Kansas Super Lawyers (but has yet to spend the money for the cool plaques you can buy--he’s  that cheap).
