Crowds bustling… doors closing… wheels turning … to some, the chaos of commuting by train on the east coast is tricky. For others, it’s a treasure. In Robin Gilden’s case, it’s a track way towards success.
Robin’s commitment to the world of tax began on the 7 line. During her first year of law school at Rutgers University in Camden, New Jersey, Robin faced a sinister six-hour round trip commute to and from her home in Queens, New York. It was on this brutal commute, consisting of four transfers and three long hours each way, that Robin put all of her attention and focus into tax. Day in and day out, she studied with dedication and diligence, determined to outpace the rest of her classmates. Even the conductors began to take notice of her resolve, occasionally preventing any fellow passengers from interrupting her studying. It was on these tracks that Robin began her journey of becoming the tax connoisseur she is today.
While she no longer needs the crazy commute to prove it, Robin remains one of the most dedicated tax attorneys in her areas of expertise. From federal income tax to Section 409A, Robin’s 36 year career has prepared her with a wealth of understanding in corporate tax, partnership tax, and everything in between. She’s brought years of tax and wealth planning experience not only to MSK, but to Loyola Marymount University where she enjoyed teaching partnership tax courses for seven years. Whether she’s working here in our LA office or teaching a room full of students, Robin puts in the same level of focus and grit as if she were still on that 7 line.
