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 was referred to Peter after my divorce to put documents together to protect my assets. He suggested a number of documents that would help protect my children and their future. Also, he put together wills, power of attorney and living wills. I initially spoke with him on the phone, he took 30-40 minutes to understand my situation and explain the benefits of having such documents. After a week or two, I met with him in his office and signed the documents. Everything else was remote phone calls and emails. He re-explained these documents and what whom to share. I am in good hands.

I saw four lawyers and was told by all of them; I should just forget contesting my mother's will. I knew what happened, but it is very hard to prove undue influence. I contacted the Law Offices of Peter L. Klenk & Associates. Attorney Amanda DiChello took my case. They were very honest and upfront about what would be involved trying to prove what I knew was true. Attorney DiChello may be young but she is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. She listened and understood what I conveyed to her. She knew exactly what information to use and crafted an outstanding interrogatory and many powerful depositions. Attorney DiChello understood the various emotional feelings this case created for my family and me; she was always there for us with a kind and encouraging word. We went to trial. The amount of work which she and her Paralegal did for the trial was incredible. They both knew my case inside and out! Attorney DiChello's powerful interrogative and thinking skills produced a positive outcome. Attorney DiChello did what other seasoned lawyers said was impossible!
