NEW YORK, NY - Richard E. Weltman, a founding member of the law firm of Weltman & Moskowitz, LLP, recently presented an informative seminar to members of the Estate Planning Committee of the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants at their FAE Conference Center in New York City.

Mr. Weltman's November 2006 presentation was titled Bankruptcy Reform One Year Later: What the Estate Planning Professional Needs To Know. The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 ("BAPCPA"), which impacts estate planners in many significant respects from changes in property exemptions to tax filing requirements, became largely effective on October 16, 2005. Mr. Weltman's timely seminar was well received by the attendees, who received continuing education credit and engaged him in a lively discussion of the intersection of estate planning and bankruptcy reform legislation.
