The Electronic Practice

Topic of Discussion: We are fortunate to have attorney Donald H. Kelley return as our guest speaker for our one hour February 2013 Committee call to replace the one that had to be cancelled in December of 2013 due to technical difficulties. In addition to being a well known author of "Estate Planning for Farmers and Ranchers" and "Family Business Organizations" (Thomson West), Don is the solo developer of the popular estate planning software calculation program called "Intuitive Estate Planner" (Thomson Reuters) and the author of a monthly "Technology Column" in Trusts & Estates Magazine. Most importantly, Don is the author of what is considered by many (including yours truly) to be a must have reference tool when it comes to technology issues for estate planners and administrators called "The Electronic Practice" (Wealth Management Press). This publication has become so popular that, in addition to a written and disk version, it now comes in a downloadable ePub format for both PC or MAC so that it can be downloaded onto an iPad or similar devices and easily updated. It is chock full of instant direct URL links to almost every resources that is listed in the book. We have asked Don to speak to all of us about the recently released 4th Edition of "The Electronic Practice" and what this publication can mean to any law office that is currently contemplating software and related technology purchases or upgrades, let alone the wealth of knowledge it contains about many of the practice management issues we all face every day as we try to improve the economics of our law practices in these difficult economic times. In addition to being a member of the Nebraska and Colorado Bar Associations, Don is a Past Regent of the American College of Trust & Estate Counsel, as past Chair of the ACTEC Technology in the Practice Committee, and a current member of the ACTEC Quicken Fiduciary Accounting Templates Tech Support Committee. This is one conference call you will not want to miss.

Group Conference Call at 4 pm Eastern time
January 23, 2014
The January 23rd call is hosted by the Insurance and Financial Planning Committee. Dial (866)646-6488, Passcode 53807002591. David F. Sterling will present "Annuities in the Estate Plan: The Attorney's Conundrum". Practitioners can no longer disregard or dismiss the "migration of clients" to insurance based solutions for their estate planning and financial governance needs and goals. Life insurance, annuities and long-term care products address an array of planning considerations that were once considered the exclusive domain of the legal profession. The most challenging to understand and integrate into the planning process is the annuity contract. This panel presentation will examine the significance of this market trend from a practice management perspective.
