Until late 2009 John A. Warnick was a partner in the Denver office of a large regional law firm where he chaired that firm’s Private Client Service Group. In early 2010 Mr. Warnick launched the Purposeful Planning Collaboration, a virtual community of estate planning attorneys, financial planners, CPAs, trustees, wealth psychologists and family business consultants who want to insure that the impact of their technical planning will be a positive force in the lives of each generation of their client families. His blog, Seedlings, provides suggestions on powerful but easy ways in which we can make non-financial gifts to our families, clients and communities, and his monthly newsletter showcases best practices for families of wealth and families in business. Mr. Warnick is a Best Lawyer in America and SuperLawyer. He serves on the Board of Directors of Advisors in Philanthropy and is a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel. Mr. Warnick received a BA magna cum laude from Brigham Young University and his JD from George Washington University with honors.
