Robert “Bobby” Feisee
Professional Career Path
Bobby Feisee is currently President of InSight Law and an adjunct Law Professor for the George Mason School of Law. After graduating from George Mason Law School and passing the Virginia Bar in 1996, Bobby worked at a small litigation firm, Curran & Whittington, P.C. In 1998, Bobby moved on to a larger firm, Rees, Broome, & Diaz, P.C., located in Tysons Corner, Virginia. At Rees, Broome, & Diaz, Bobby was responsible for enforcing contracts and judgments. It was here that Bobby realized that he wanted to help people protect their assets rather than enforcing judgments for creditors.
Thereafter, Bobby left Rees, Broome & Diaz in 2001 and joined Morgan Stanley as a financial advisor to help people grow their wealth. At Morgan Stanley, Bobby realized the important connection between estate planning and financial planning. It was also during this time that Bobby’s father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.
“It wasn’t until after my dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s that I reviewed his estate plan (i.e. his Will, Trust, Power of Attorney and Medical Directives). I realized that I had made a terrible mistake not reviewing these documents with my dad earlier. I also made the mistake of not talking to my dad’s attorney and financial advisor. The legal documents were basically a bunch of boiler plate forms that really gave us no direction on what my dad’s wishes were.
“Even worse, I realized too late that my dad’s attorney never talked to my dad’s financial advisor to discuss his planning. We could have saved a lot of money and a lot of heartache for my mom if my dad’s financial plan was integrated with his estate plan. Here I was, an attorney who was learning about financial planning and I was seeing all the worst things happen to my own family. I felt helpless. I began taking matters into my own hands and learned everything I could about estate planning. I decided to leave Morgan Stanley to focus on estate planning and to work with financial advisors in helping people with some of the most important decisions in their life. I felt that people didn’t really understand the consequences of the choices they were making when it came to estate planning. My career path has led me to this point in my life where I can’t possibly think of doing anything else.”
