Scott Gutterson '83 ~ September Alumnus of the Month

Touro Law Center's Office of Institutional Advancement is proud to announce that Scott Gutterson ’83 has been selected as the alumnus of the month for September 2014. Mr. Gutterson is a member of Touro Law Center’s inaugural graduating class of 1983 and a leading tax arbitrator known as The Taxx Man.

On behalf of the entire law school community, we extend our congratulations to Scott Gutterson.

As a practicing solo attorney with almost 30 years’ experience in tax strategy, tax preparation, and financial planning, Scott provides direct services, as well as referrals, to other excellent and trustworthy professionals when needed. He has built his practice into one that manages over 2,300 clients in 40 states and 15 countries.  With a main office on Madison Avenue, he handles all areas of Wills, Trusts & Estates, Real Estate and Acquisitions and often works in conjunction with the attorneys who make their practice in rented space on his 40th floor suite.

Mr. Gutterson attributes the fulfillment he derives from his career to the ability to develop close relationships with clients, whom he treats as friends. The viewpoint of clients as friends drives him to work harder for those he serves and to think about financial issues from a myriad of different angles. The diversity of his client base has provided him with an education about the vast array of professions and talents that exist in the world.  In addition to providing direct services, Mr. Gutterman maintains an informative blog covering topics such as; Budgeting, Saving, Retirement, College Tuition, Rainy Day Savings, Investing, Insurance, Estate Planning and First Time Home Buying.

In May of 2014 Scott established the Gutterson Family Scholarship at Touro Law Center with a gift of $100,000. The scholarship is to be awarded annually to 2 continuing students who are interested in the fields of business, tax or entrepreneurship. That same month, his son Matthew also received his Juris Doctorate from Touro and will officially join The Taxx Man team upon acceptance into the Bar.
