Peter Klenk Selected to Teach Pennsylvania Bar Institute’s CLE Seminar

Posted on Mon Dec 8, 2014, on Estate Planning

The Pennsylvania Bar Institute, the continuing education arm of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, selected Peter Klenk, the principal at Klenk Law, to teach their CLE seminar on the estate planning impact of Pennsylvania’s Uniform Trust Act. Peter was part of a panel of attorneys chosen for their estate planning expertise and familiarity with Pennsylvania’s Uniform Trust Act.

The three-hour seminar, “Pennsylvania’s Uniform Trust Act: Pitfalls and Solutions,” was held on December 8th in the CLE Conference Center in Philadelphia. Topics covered included:

Fundamental General Changes
Notices
Revocable Trusts vs. Wills
Representation (includes conflicts)
Charitable Trusts and Judicial Proceedings
Non-Judicial Proceedings Modification/Reformation Trust Protectors
Annual Accountings

The seminar provided important information on the practical implications of the Uniform Trust Act, how it impacts estate planning practices and what techniques can be utilized for accounting, filing, claims and virtual representation

Some examples of crucial techniques:

  • Details on when notices of a trust’s existence must be provided to trust beneficiaries
  • The new revocable trust regime and if advantages remain for revocable trusts over wills
  • Beneficiaries’ new authority to modify trusts, including irrevocable trusts
  • Conditions when adult family members can represent minor or future unborn beneficiaries in proceedings or agreements to interpret or modify trusts
  • Drafting trust documents to offer more flexibility to beneficiaries

I contacted Peter through his website using the free consultation link for a question regarding a will. While I was expecting only a few minutes, it was a lengthy conversation. He made sure he understood the situation by asking many questions before offering advice. He then went through my options and results of each one. He left it up to me to decide if I wanted to proceed and did not push me toward one or another. His website has very useful information which I definitely researched before I called him. While I decided not to proceed at this time, I feel I had enough information to make that decision. I would not hesitate to hire him should I need to in the future.
