Michelle Rose-Hughes



I am entering my fourth decade of the practice of law – all that time spent as a tax and estate planning specialist. I find deep satisfaction in my work with individuals and families. My work with clients involves the most intimate of their personal legal needs, including planning for marriage, birth and adoption of children and grandchildren, major illness and, eventually, death. Individuals vary widely in their preferences for maximizing wealth transfer and minimizing tax. Similarly, individuals differ in the timing and degree of control their heirs will ultimately gain over inherited wealth. I relish learning each client’s personal story and unique perspective so that, together, we may identify goals for the preservation and transfer of wealth that remain true to a client’s expressed values and objectives.

Prior to founding Tuthill & Hughes LLP in 2007, I spent fifteen years, the last seven as a partner, at a large regional law firm. Our boutique practice continues to adhere to the best practices of our former firm, including the highest ethical standards, attention to every detail and excellent client service. It gives me great satisfaction to deliver this exemplary level of legal service to my clients.
