AttorneyS Richard L. Gershberg and Jacob j. toumayan ATTEND EXCLUSIVE ESTATE PLANNING
Baltimore, Maryland – Local Estate Planning Attorneys Richard L. Gershberg and Jacob J. Toumayan attended an educational conference in Memphis, TN in April  sponsored by the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys. The Academy is the premier national educational organization that promotes excellence in estate planning by providing member attorneys with research and vital updates in estate, tax and business planning law since 1993. The advanced training included Estate Planning Tools in a Low Interest Rate Environment, Adding Special Needs to Your Practice, and Medicaid Planning under DRA: The Medicaid Irrevocable Income Only Trust. Additional training focused on Using Legacy Wealth Planning to Meet the Needs of the Next Generation and Protecting the Institutionalized Spouse.
Attorney Gershberg  focuses  his practice on estate law planning, immigration, and litigation and understands the value of continuing education. “Ensuring that I am on the cutting edge of planning techniques and able to serve my client’s needs during turbulent economic times is a top priority,” says Attorney Gershberg. “Attending Academy educational conferences allows me the opportunity to have multiple days of intense training so I am confident that when I return to the office my clients will benefit from the latest estate planning strategies available, especially in the current economy.”
“Taking the time to be out of the office is a large commitment for our firm but one we believe is essential for the success of the firm,” says Attorney Gershberg. “We want to be here to serve the needs of our clients for generations to come and with sessions such as The Anatomy of a Financially Successful Academy Law Firm, I am able to see real life examples of how our firm is on a stable track based on successful firms across the nation. The assurance that this firm will be here for generations is as important to our clients as it is to us.”
