TAX/ESTATE PLANNING WINNER

Robert H. Haggard
The Van Winkle Law Firm, Asheville

At 15, I landed a prestigious position in the kitchen at Camp Sequoyah near Weaverville, serving campers and washing pots and pans.

Vita: Born Aug. 12,1949, in Alexandria, Va.; bachelor’s degree from Davidson College and law degree from Florida State University; two children and one grandson.

Why he chose to specialize in this field: A trust and estate practice affords frequent opportunities to be creative and to not only help solve problems but, through effective planning, prevent them.

Memorable case: The validity of a will executed by a man who had been administered a frontal lobotomy. A hint regarding the outcome: The frontal lobes are the site of all volitional behavior.

Passions: Sailing, boating, service projects, antique tractors and college football.

What he’d be if not a lawyer: Charter-boat captain.

Favorite place: Shroud Cay, Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park in the Bahamas.

Hero: Ronald Reagan.

Recent reading: South, written by Sir Ernest Shackleton.

Don’t ask him to: Wash someone else’s pots and pans!
