Please join the Estate Planning & Probate Section on Thursday, February 21, 2019, at the Heckerling Continues (Despite Government Shutdown) event.

Despite Professor Donaldson’s prediction during the Q & A session at Heckerling that final 199A Regs. would be delayed due to the shutdown, final 199A Regs. were issued (but not discussed) the last day of the 53rd Annual Heckering Institute on Estate Planning. So, in addition to covering as much as possible from the Institute, the speakers will cover post-Heckerling developments including 199A Regs., time permitting.

Topics will include: Basis, Powers of Appointment, Engagement Letters, Foreign Property Ownership by U.S. Persons, Charitable Planning, Insurance Planning, IRA Trusts, Divorce planning (after TCJA alimony change), Fiduciary Selection, as well as numerous significant rulings from 2018. This will be a fast-paced presentation as the speakers will attempt to compress 30+ hours of learning into 1+ hour.

Special Note: This will be a joint event, hosted by both the Peninsula Estate Planning Council and the SMCBA’s Estate Planning & Probate Section.

Cost: Cost is $40 per person for members of the SMCBA Estate Planning Section who inform us in advance that they will attend and $55 for non section members. Cost includes lunch and 1 hour of MCLE credit.

Registration: Please login on the SMCBA website to register for this event or contact the program coordinator, Jim Griffiths at or fax (510) 588-4543.  For questions about this event, please email or fax (510) 588-4543.
