Jannuzzi Completes Master’s Degree in Estate Planning

IMG_1216   Yours truly is proud to report that as of May 10, 2020, I have completed my Master of Laws degree (LL.M.) in Estate Planning, with honors. The adventure began in 2015 when I applied to the John Marshall Law School, now part of the University of Illinois at Chicago, for its online master’s program. I completed 24 credits in federal estate, gift and income tax, estate planning, trust and estate administration and ethics. It was by no means easy to come home from a full day, or week, of work and to crack open the Internal Revenue Code, treasury regulations, textbooks, etc. and study and do homework.

I have practiced in the areas of probate and estate administration and litigation since 2002. Estate planning was the perfect complement to my expertise in those areas of law. Since 2015, I have been assisting clients with preparation of estate plans, drafting trusts, wills and powers of attorney to facilitate planning for disability and the end of life and the transmission of wealth to the next generation. I am gratified to have had the opportunity to deepen and broaden my experience by additional academic training, and I look forward to bringing this knowledge to bear in helping my clients.
