Course Description

Course Description

A trust is a legal entity that allows someone to transfer the legal title of that asset to one person while assigning the benefit of the asset to another. Some people still regard Trusts as the exclusive preserve of the wealthy. This is not the case.

In simple terms, a Trust forms a protective wrapper or envelope around those assets placed into it by the person who creates it. A Trust is created when the Settlor gives assets such as property or money to the Trustees who hold the assets on behalf of the Beneficiaries.

This CPE Tax Course is an in-depth discussion of the various ways that clients may use different forms of trusts in their estate planning to protect and preserve their assets.

Particular focus will be given to the ways that irrevocable trusts can minimize a client’s exposure to state or federal estate taxes, reduce a client’s risk of loss to long-term care nursing home expenses in some jurisdictions, and ensure that beneficiaries do not waste an inheritance that is transferred to them in trust.

About Presenter

Nathan Shoff

Associate Attorney, Lacy Katzen LLP Attorneys at Law

Nathan compassionately assists clients facing the inevitable challenges of aging, sickness, and death, by counseling clients on how to put the best estate plan in place for their needs. This involves guidance on what form of estate plan is most appropriate, whom to appoint as fiduciary of that plan (Power of Attorney Agent, Trustee, Executor), and what kind of property beneficiaries (children, grandchildren, charities, etc.) should receive after a person’s death.  Over more than fifteen years in practice, Nathan has assisted many individuals and families with planning ahead for their incapacity and death through the effective drafting of Health Care Proxies, Living Wills, Last Wills, Powers of Attorney, Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts.

As part of planning for the elderly and disabled individuals, Nathan will also counsel clients on what public benefits may be available to help pay for a client’s long-term care. This often involves navigating the complex rules and regulations of the Medicaid program in New York, in order to preserve clients’ assets as much as possible, while still obtaining the Medicaid coverage needed to pay for their long-term medical needs.

After the passing of a loved one, Nathan assists the fiduciary (Trustee, Administrator or Executor) with the administration of that person’s estate, to ensure that the final wishes expressed in their estate planning documents are fulfilled. This process may involve the probate of a Last Will or other Court proceeding, which Nathan walks clients through with careful precision.  Additionally, Nathan works tirelessly to advocate for clients who are beneficiaries of a decedent’s Estate, to make sure that such beneficiaries receive everything to which they are entitled.

A Western New York native, Nathan graduated summa cum laude from Canisius College with a dual major in political science and modern languages, before graduating magna cum laude from SUNY Buffalo School of Law in 2006.  Nathan is licensed to practice law in New York State.  Over his many years of practice in New York, Nathan has given several public and private seminars on various estate planning topics, including the proper preparation and use of Powers of Attorney, Wills, and Trusts, as well as effective methods of naming trusts as beneficiaries to IRAs.
