We are proud to announce that shareholder, Glenn A. Henkel, Esquire, has been honored by the New Jersey State Bar Association with the 2016 Distinguished Legislative Service Award for his years of concentrated effort on the Uniform Trust Code.
On January 19, 2016, Governor Christie signed Assembly Bill 2915/Senate Bill 2035, known as the “Uniform Trust Code” (“UTC”), as Chapter 276, P. L. 2015. The Uniform Trust Code is a work of the Uniform Laws Commission but was adapted to New Jersey to provide precise comprehensive and accessible guidance on trust law questions.
Mr. Henkel served on a bar committee that adapted the “uniform” act to New Jersey common law and New Jersey procedures. This award was received along with his fellow colleagues Andrew J. DeMaio, Esquire, Richard H. Greenberg, Esquire and Lawrence A. Friedman, Esquire.
The Annual Distinguished Legislative Service Award is the highest recognition available to a New Jersey State Bar Association member in appreciation of meaningful legislative service.
Glenn A. Henkel is a shareholder in the firm. He earned his J.D. degree at Rutgers University School of Law, where he graduated with honors and was awarded the Prentice Hall Award for outstanding performance in the area of taxation, and earned his LL.M. in Taxation at New York University.

His particular areas of expertise include complex estate planning, tax-exempt organizations and Probate, Trust and Estate Law. Read More.
