Kemp Klein Donates No-Sew Fleece Blankets to Common Ground
The attorneys and staff of Kemp Klein have come together to craft hand-tied fleece blankets for Common Ground’s clients. This is the fourth blanket making event that Kemp Klein has held. Common Ground distributes these as comfort items for children, victims of trauma, homeless, and other families and individuals in need of assistance.
The Kemp Klein Foundation is a proud Legacy Society Benefactor for Common Ground. We have provided more than $200,000 in pro bono work to Common Ground. In addition to the pro bono work and financial contributions, we have hosted joint events for staff and clients of Common Ground, participated in Common Ground’s Adopt-A-Family initiative and we have held blanket making and other events to help those in need.

Tax Law Basics for Probate and Estate Planning Attorneys
Help build your estate planning practice by mastering key tax law concepts. Our expert explains the unified credit, unlimited marital deduction, general powers of appointment, disclaimers, and more.
Neal Nusholtz explains the unified credit:
“Unified Credit is a dollar amount that determines if you pay estate and gift taxes. It’s used for both and any amount of gifts that are made will reduce the remaining amount of the unified credits. For example, If the unified credits were ten million dollars and you made a million dollars of gifts your remaining unified credit would be nine million dollars. It’s the number over which you pay over 40% estate or gift tax if you exceed that number”.
