Trusts & Estates

The Multimillionaire Rat Race

An estate planning lawyer who advises Silicon Valley millionaires says his clients don’t feel particularly rich.

Lawyer David Hettig told the New York Times that well-to-do high-tech executives compare themselves with others who have even more money.

“People around here, if they have 2 or 3 million dollars, they don’t feel secure,” Hettig said. “We’re in such a rarefied environment [that] people here lose perspective on what the rest of the world looks like.”
