The Suffolk Academy of Law is holding a CLE and CPE entitled, Can You Trust Your Trust? on Thursday, November 6, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. at the Suffolk County Bar Center in Hauppauge, New York. Here is why you should attend:
Many taxpayers use trusts in their estate plans to avoid probate. A trust is frequently used as the alter ego of a will. Trusts are worthwhile when done properly, but can be nightmares if improperly administered. As a result of the revamping of many state trust laws – including New York’s– trustees often find themselves with more questions than they are prepared for, questions without easily discernible answers. The purpose of this program is to alert practitioners as to the many issues that they must consider from a practical point of view. Ethics issues and potential malpractice situations will be covered as well. The presenter, Seymour Goldberg, has lectured and trained many attorneys and CPAs on the trust accounting income and principal rules under the revised New York State trust accounting laws. His newest book – “Can You Trust Your Trust?” – was published by the American Bar Association in 2014 and is a first of its kind manual, written from areal world standpoint; the book will be given to registrants, at no additional cost, as part of the course materials.
