Walnut Creek Law Firm De La Housaye & Associates to Present February 27th Seminar on Estate Law Changes

A Guide to Action Under the New Congressional 2013 Bill

WALNUT CREEK, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 13, 2013) - Christopher Jew, an Associate Trial Attorney with De La Housaye & Associates, will host a complimentary seminar with critical information and estate management strategies regarding a newly passed Congressional Bill. Experienced in estate planning, conservatorships, probate of decedent's estates and trust administration, Mr. Jew will provide a review of the new legislation and offer useful and time sensitive recommendations for individuals on financial and estate management. The seminar will take place at 6PM, Wednesday February 27 at the firm's Walnut Creek office, 1655 N. Main Street, Suite 260. Reservations are required for attendance.

Due to Congress' recent passage of a Bill that will avoid the "sunset" of the existing estate tax laws, individual estate tax exemptions remain at $5 million (indexed for inflation), relieving many people of a large estate tax implication at death for those with estates over $1 million. A sunset of that provision would have caused the exemption to drop back down to $1 million and the top tax rate increased to rise to 55%.

"While many homeowners will benefit from this legislation," said Mr. Jew, "the bill lacks continuity and certainty. Although these changes are supposed to be permanent, the volatility of tax laws leaves many individuals in the dark as to how to prepare for future years and how to plan for their estate valuation and tax." 

De La Housaye is recommending that most clients review their estate plans, due to this uncertainty.

For more information on the recently passed Bill and the recommendations from De La Housaye & Associates, please see the article, "The Long Awaited 2013 Estate Tax" which is available here [].

The February 27 seminar is complimentary, but space is limited and reservations are required. Contact Heather Larsen at 925-944-3300 or for information or to register.
