The increasing complexity of our income tax, wealth transfer tax and property laws, combined with today’s changing economic environment and shifting demographics of our population, have created a demand for attorneys with expertise in individual and estate planning.
Estate planning attorneys are needed not only to deal with the tax implications of wealth transfers, but also with the related non-tax, investment and business succession planning issues. The Heckerling Graduate Program in Estate Planning is ideally positioned to meet this growing need for sophisticated estate planning professionals.
Tina Portuondo the Director of the Heckerling Graduate Program in Estate Planning and the Director of the Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning. She is also the immediate past chair of the ABA's Section of Real Property, Trust, and Estate Law (RPTE), and a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC).
