Nuts & Bolts of the Massachusetts Uniform Trust Code
Please join the Essex County Estate Planning Council for our April 2, 2014 event - Nuts & Bolts of the Massachusetts Uniform Trust Code - featuring speaker, Attorney Timothy D. Sullivan of AndoverLaw, P.C.

Trusts are a commonplace planning device. If you are an attorney, fiduciary, financial planner or tax advisor, the MUTC will impact your clients' estate planning and future wealth management. Come join the Essex County Estate Planning Council and learn how from Attorney Timothy D. Sullivan, who was the Massachusetts Bar Association's representative to the Ad Hoc Massachusetts Uniform Trust Code Committee.
