Begley Law Group Attorney Presenting on Irrevocable Trusts with Pennsylvania Bar Institute
Moorestown, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) August 7, 2013 – New Jersey elder law attorney Thomas D. Begley, Jr., Esq. is speaking as a faculty member in a course co-presented by the Pennsylvania Bar Institute (PBI) on “Irrevocable Trusts: Drafting with the Right Ingredients” on Tuesday, August 27, 2013.
Mr. Begley will be discussing irrevocable trusts as part of a powerful estate planning tool for elder law attorneys to help their clients protect their interests.
“Irrevocable trusts have previously been utilized as a means to transfer wealth between high net-worth family members,” commented elder law attorney Thomas D. Begley, Jr. “But irrevocable trusts can also be quite useful for middle-income clients, as well. Estate and elder law attorneys are using them to help their clients with exorbitant long-term care costs, potential lawsuits, and other concerns.”
There are seven primary purposes to establishing an irrevocable trust: for federal estate tax uses; veterans’ benefits; Medicaid; credit and lawsuit protection; fund management; scams and undue influence protection; and probate avoidance. Covered topics include how to decide what planning choices are appropriate for the client, how the trusts meet the client’s goals, and how the trust operates during the settlor’s lifetime and after. Case studies will be presented, as will the relevant tax provisions, spendthrift clauses, beneficiaries, and the duties of the trustees.
The course is located at CLE Conference Center, Wanamaker Bldg (now Macy’s), 10th Floor, Ste. 1010, Philadelphia, PA, at two scheduled times: Tuesday, August 27 at 12:30 p.m. and again at 3:45 p.m. Co-sponsoring the event is the Pennsylvania Bar Institute and the Pennsylvania Bar Association Elder Law Section and Real Property, Probate & Trust Law Sections. The course is offered for 3 Total CLE credits (no ethics). For more information, call (800) 932-4637, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
