Irrevocable trusts are often misunderstood.  Despite all the constant talk about their uses and applications, few clients and advisors really understand the potential power and application of these estate planning, asset protection planning, tax planning, special needs planning, elder care planning, and charitable planning tools.  And along these lines there are usually many unanswered questions such as when should irrevocable trusts be used?; what do irrevocable trusts really do and how do they function?; what are the downsides of irrevocable trusts?; how can we be sure not to miss opportunities with irrevocable trust planning?; are irrevocable trusts really suitable for most clients?; and more.

In this interactive workshop, attorney Stephen R. Elville will provide an overview of the most utilized irrevocable trusts and their potential uses and purposes in 2022.  Steve will address the above-mentioned questions along with the questions of attendees.  The following major topics will also be covered:
