Randy Pankratz recently took part in the Midwestern Estate, Tax and Business Planning Institute, held June 12 and 13 in Indianapolis. Several hundred attorneys and other Midwestern estate planning professionals participated in the meetings. Subjects covered included changes in recommended provisions and procedures for revocable trusts, retirement assets, and advance directives.
Pankratz said the subject matter of the institute was especially applicable to central Kansans who are planning ahead for their family’s interests. “Almost every working or retired Kansan over the age of 40 is concerned about being a good steward of their resources, both for their retirement years, and for those who come after them,” Pankratz said. “Estate planning is partly the process of taking stock of the circumstances of your loved ones, and making the most insightful choices you can make.”
Pankratz’s legal practice includes estate planning, business law, and other areas. He has been with the Adrian & Pankratz firm since 1984.
