    MADISON, Wis., Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- WealthCounsel, LLC announced
 today that Thomas J. Ray, Jr., Esq. will be participating in a book signing
 event in conjunction with WealthCounsel's presence as an exhibitor at the
 42nd Annual Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning, Jan. 14-18, 2008 in
 Orlando, Fla.
     Ray, a WealthCounsel founder, principal and estate planning attorney
 from St. Louis, Miss., is author of the bestselling deskbook, Charitable
 Gift Planning, published by the American Bar Association. The book signing
 involves the recently-released second edition of the popular reference
 guide, which is comprehensive in its coverage and both technical and
 practical in its format.
     "It was truly an honor to work with the ABA Section of Real Property,
 Trust and Estate Law to produce this reference work," said Ray.
 "Practitioners will appreciate the fact that the second edition offers many
 useful practice pointers and clearly explains the impact of the Pension
 Protection Act of 2006, as well as the Tax Reform and Health Care Act of
 2005 on all aspects of charitable gift planning."
     According to the ABA, the revised edition contains important updates
 indicated throughout the text that are occasioned by the Pension Protection
 Act. In addition to changes wrought by these recent legislative enactments,
 the second edition contains updated information that reflects new court
 opinions and rulings by the Internal Revenue Service.
     "As one of the nation's leading authorities in the area of charitable
 gift planning, Tom is the primary draftsman of the charitable components of
 our estate planning document drafting system, WealthDocs(TM)," said Laura
 Wilson, executive director of WealthCounsel. "We are truly blessed to have
 someone with Tom's reputation and expertise providing the legal content
 used by hundreds of WealthCounsel member attorneys around the country,"
 Wilson added.
     Ray will be available at the WealthCounsel exhibit booth (#214) on
 Monday, Jan. 14, 2008 from 12:30-2:00 p.m., and again on Wednesday, Jan.
 16, 2008 from 12:30-2:00 p.m. Copies of the book may be purchased at the
