Current Issues in Estate Planning for 2013
Tuesday, January 8th
BlackFinn American Grille
The 2013 New Year marks the 3rd consecutive year in which estate and gift tax laws are in a state of substantial flux. Exemption amounts and rates have changed unpredictably and ranged widely in the last several years. The New Year is expected to herald substantial new changes once again.
Join WIFS NE FL for lunch as Jeff Cramer with Cramer Law Center reviews the current issues in Estate Planning for 2013. Jeff will provide a practical guide to major changes in the estate and gift tax law, planning opportunities under the new tax regime, and a discussion of how changed law impacts existing plans.
Jeffrey A. Cramer holds an undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt University and a Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.), with honors, from the University of Florida College of Law, where he served on the Editorial Board of the Law Review. He has been admitted to practice law in all state and federal courts in Florida. With more than 34 years experience as a civil trial lawyer, Jeff successfully has handled a wide variety of personal injury and employment-discrimination claims, contract and family disputes, as well as probate and guardianship contests in both trial and appellate courts. Jeff also has been an adjunct professor of employment law at Florida Coastal School of Law, a frequent lecturer at continuing legal education seminars and has published several articles on civil trial issues.
Jeff has been certified by the Florida Supreme Court as both a circuit court and family mediator. He has received the highest rating from his peers, “AV” by the Martindale-Hubbell Company, is listed in the “Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers” and “Who’s Who in American Law”. Jeff has served as Escambia-Santa Rosa County Bar Association President and both as Northwest Florida Chapter President and member of the National Board of Directors of the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates.
The extensive trial experience gathered from handling thousands of diverse civil matters has provided the skills necessary for Jeff to embark on the next phase of his career, helping people and families to plan effectively for their future. Jeff undertook a several month course of intensive study of all facets of estate planning and now focuses his law practice on estate planning, estate administration (including probate), guardianship and elder law. He is a member of the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys, an experienced, cutting-edge group of forward thinking lawyers who collaborate and educate on the latest estate planning laws and techniques. Jeff also is a certified legacy advisor helping clients pass on their wisdom along with their wealth. As a result, his law practice now offers clients the combination of the support of a group of experienced estate planning colleagues from around the country along with Jeff’s own extensive legal background and experience.
