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
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
