Jill Checkoway Featured in “Keeping that Nest Egg” Article in Maine Ahead Magazine

Category: Firm News

Jill Checkoway, a partner who concentrates in the firm’s estate planning and probate practice, was a featured participant in Maine Ahead’s magazine article entitled “Keeping that Nest Egg”. In the October 2011 issue, two financial planners and two attorneys were selected to discuss how each of them helped Maine families maximize their assets.  Jill’s responses highlighted how proper estate planning can not only save estate taxes, but also provide needed direction for the control of assets when minor children might be left behind.  In addition, Jill explained why there is no reason to fear “probate” since Maine’s system is unlike the more complicated probate procedures required in other states.  What clients should fear is being unprepared-- whether it is a dispute on how to continue to run the family business, care for children through the end of their college education or keep estate taxes down.  Jill is happy to answer client’s questions on any probate or estate planning issues.
