Please join the Estate Planning & Probate Section on Thursday, November 21, 2019, for a presentation on Estate Planner Liability for Transmutation Malpractice Arising Out of Divorce with John P. Golden, Esq. and Jennifer L. Mispagel, Esq.
The presentation will focus on Estate planning attorneys (and others) who often prepare transmutation agreements in connection with tax and estate planning for married clients. This program will cover a myriad of problems caused by such agreements which usually arise during marital dissolution proceedings but can sometimes arise in the event of death of a spouse (or even in the creditor context). The program will include tips on how to reduce (but not eliminate) the malpractice risk for the estate planner.
Presenter John P. Golden is a California Certified Specialist in Probate, Estate Planning & Trust Law in Hopkins & Carley. With more than 35 years of experience in estate planning, John counsels clients on estate planning and administration of estates and trusts.
Presenter Jennifer L. Mispagel is an associate in Hopkins & Carley’s Family Wealth & Tax Planning Department. She represents individuals, families, trustees, executors and personal representatives in Estate Planning, Wealth preservation and transfers, and more.
