David Rohlfing

In his practice Dave advises clients on estate planning matters such as special needs trusts, trusts tailored to tax advantaged retirement benefits, charitable giving, and business planning and administration. He also serves clients in the areas of probate and trust administration, tax planning and controversy, will and trust contests and litigation, Alaska Native corporation stock succession, and access to public benefit programs.

Dave works to identify creative, common-sense approaches to address individual concerns and problems, and to implement those plans to create solid, long-term solutions. Dave is dedicated to providing high-quality, specialized services to folks from all walks of life, and Shaftel Law Offices provides the opportunity to do so.

Outside of the office, Dave works with the Alaska Business Development Center to provide free tax controversy and preparation services to rural and underserved areas throughout the state of Alaska. This has brought him to Hoonah, Good News Bay, Bethel, Fairbanks, Platinum, and Kodiak, and given him the opportunity to serve taxpayers in communities throughout the state. He also trains youth “attorneys” with the Anchorage Youth Court and participates in the Alaska Worker’s Association member benefits programs. Dave grew up and went to school on the east coast and lived in Portland, Oregon prior to relocating to Alaska. Dave lives in downtown Anchorage with his girlfriend (who is also a member of the Anchorage legal community). He spends his free time enjoying all sorts of music, riding his bike, trying to finish crossword puzzles, cooking, or wandering around outside.
