Kansas City, MO (November 1, 2016) – Sandberg Phoenix & Von Gontard P.C. announced today that Garrett Griffin and Jason Salinardi have joined the firm’s Kansas City office as Counsels in the Wealth Planning practice group. The addition of Griffin and Salinardi closely follows that of real estate attorney Michele O’Malley and commercial litigator Sharon Stolte who joined the Kansas City office earlier this year.
“Garrett and Jason are great additions to our wealth planning team and we are extremely pleased to welcome them in Kansas City,” said Sandberg Phoenix Managing Partner John Sandberg. “As we continue to grow key practices areas for the firm, we look for talented attorneys who share our values and are dedicated to providing the highest quality client service.”
Griffin, who brings more than fifteen years of experience in wealth strategies and estate planning, focuses his practice on providing wealth preservation and migration services to select clients and families including counseling those clients on wealth transfer, estate freezing techniques and gifting strategies. In addition to his representation of individual clients, Griffin assists closely-held and family owned businesses with transition & succession planning as well as closely-held business throughout the business life-cycle.
A third generation attorney, Griffin received a J.D. from the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Law and an LL.M. in Taxation, and a B.S. in Business Administration from William Jewell College.

His practice is focused on providing comprehensive, personalized estate planning counsel to couples, families, individuals and businesses. After losing his brother to the terrorist attacks on 9/11, Salinardi has developed an estate planning practice that not only helps families plan for their financial capital (what they own) but also for their human capital (who they are) and intellectual capital (what they know). He works closely with his clients to develop plans that reflect his client’s unique situations.
Salinardi received his J.D. from the University of Missouri-Columbia, a LL.M. in Taxation from the University of Missouri-Kansas City, and a B.S. and Master’s in Accountancy from the University of Missouri- Columbia.
