The Difference

This documentary explores the 20-year experience that Ed and Georgette Stormo had growing from a small entity to over a 30 Million Dollar corporation with over 225 employees. It demonstrates the critical role a competent attorney plays through a business owner's life-cycle from start to sale including protecting the wealth with asset protection and solving the "unsolvable" problems that often cause businesses to fail along the way. The Stormo family had a multi-generation business and lived in both California and Nevada during the time-frame that this film covers. This film contains interviews from the family as well as our own, John Goralka of The Goralka Law Firm.


This video shows one example where we were successful in having a distribution from an inherited IRA returned to the qualified plan. Key to this was that the stocks and other investments were all still in the same form and had not been liquidated during this period. This was a significant victory because there is no grace period and the general rule is that distributions from an inherited IRA are in fact taxable.
