Picking up Pearls of Wisdom at the AATEELA Meeting

April 26, 2012

Attorney Joseph Karp is off to Memphis this afternoon for the semi-annual meeting of the American Association of Trust, Estate Planning and Elder Law Attorneys.

AATEELA is a small, select group of legal professionals from around the country who brainstorm and exchange information. Members remain in touch year round, but gather in person twice a year.  It’s an honor to be part of this elite, invitation-only group.

AATEELA’s discussions cover a variety of topics, but this year the group will be focused on a variety of estate planning issues, including irrevocable trusts and modification techniques; the implications of clients’ diminished capacity for estate planning; and of course, that perennial topic, tax strategies for estate planning clients and the status of current federal estate tax.
