Estate and Tax Planning for Same-Sex Couples: What You Should Know (DC)

Loeb & Loeb LLP invites you to our complimentary program and networking reception, co-hosted by our Trusts and Estates Department and LGBT Affinity Group. Seminar handout is available for download under "More Info" on the right.



Under current federal law, same-sex couples cannot rely on many of the rights and privileges afforded to different-sex married couples, including those relating to their tax liability and estate planning options. Because many estate planning strategies are guided by federal law, judicial and legislative action regarding same-sex marriage provides both complications and opportunities for same-sex couples. Join us for an overview of the nuts and bolts of estate planning, with a discussion of the unique impact that same-sex relationships and marriages have on various estate planning techniques. The program will also include a discussion of the Supreme Court's United States v. Windsor decision regarding the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, as well as its decision in Hollingsworth v. Perry regarding whether California's Proposition 8 violates the equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution, both of which are anticipated to be announced just prior to the program.  

Loeb & Loeb’s Trusts and Estates Department, in conjunction with our LGBT Affinity Group, is pleased to host this complimentary event in our Washington, DC office with a networking cocktail reception following the program. The presentation will be led by Tanya A. Harvey, senior counsel in our Trusts and Estates Department.
