MC to host practical estate planning program

05/31/2013
Monmouth College will host a presentation on “Practical Estate Planning” on June 7 at 1:30 p.m. in the Follett Moot Board Room (Room 276) in the new Center for Science and Business.
 
The free, 45-minute seminar is being offered as part of the college’s Golden Scots Celebration weekend, but the public is also welcome to attend. Wine and cheese will be served.
 
Family legacy and estate planning attorney Heinz Brisske, a 1971 graduate of Monmouth College, will discuss general estate planning concepts. He will highlight asset preservation strategies, discuss the “estate tax continuum” and offer practical family planning ideas. Participants will receive a “Planning Your Legacy” booklet.
 
After graduating from Monmouth College with a degree in economics and German, Brisske received his law degree from Duke University School of Law in 1974. He earned a certificate of completion of prescribed specialization courses in estate and personal financial planning from John Marshall Law School in Chicago in 1995, and an LLM degree in taxation from the same institution in 1997.
 
Today, Brisske is an estate planning attorney with the Wheaton law firm of Huck Bouma. He currently concentrates his practice in the areas of wealth transfer and estate planning, special needs planning, elder law and VA pension planning.
 
“Even if you already have an estate plan in place, the discussion will also review possible updates to existing estate plans,” said Mary Stahl, MC’s director of individual and planned giving.
