    SAN FRANCISCO, CA, August 27, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Richard Kinyon has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Inspired by the launch of Sputnik to pursue a career in mathematics, Mr. Kinyon earned an undergraduate degree and completed coursework toward a master's degree while working in the aerospace sector. Shortly thereafter, he discovered that it was not the path for him and decided to follow his father's advice and pursue a career in law. In 1965, Mr. Kinyon began his career as an associate lawyer with Morrison & Forester LLP, with which he remained for nearly 50 years and advanced to the position of partner and then senior counsel.

Since 2013, Mr. Kinyon has excelled as a partner with Shartsis Friese LLP, specializing in the design and implementation of complex national and international estate plans for high-net-worth United States and non-U.S. residents. He helps clients establish irrevocable trusts and family investment companies and advises fiduciaries and beneficiaries regarding estate and trust administration. A long-time member of the American Law Institute, Mr. Kinyon has remained active with the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, and the State Bar of California's and The Bar Association of San Francisco's taxation and estate planning, probate and trust law sections.

In the early 1960s, Mr. Kinyon obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Minnesota before graduating with a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the aforementioned university's Law School in 1965. Over the years, he also became certified as a mediator by the Bar Association of San Francisco and a specialist in taxation law by the California Board of Legal Specialization. Apart from his affiliations with various bar associations, he remains aligned with American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, the International Academy of Estate and Trust Law and the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners. Through the Bar Association of San Francisco's Justice & Diversity Center, Mr. Kinyon has been offering pro-bono estate planning services to frontline workers during the COVID-19 crisis, providing life planning for lifesavers.

With a wide breadth of knowledge at his disposal, Mr. Kinyon has contributed to lectures and articles, including "Overview of Estate Planning Practice" and the law review article "California Income Taxation of Trusts and Estates" for such publications as "CEB Estate Planning & California Probate Reporter," "ACTEC Law Journal" and "California Trusts and Estates Quarterly." During his nearly 60-year-career, he has been honored many times, accepting the Spirit of CEB Award in recognition of his contributions to the legal profession and honors from Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers. Looking toward the future, he aims to enter a full retirement at the age of 85. Until that time, Mr. Kinyon intends to continue his exemplary work in tax policy matters.
