A founding shareholder of the firm, Pat Timmer advises clients on all matters related to trusts and estates. He represents individuals in all aspects of wealth transfer planning, including the implementation of sophisticated estate planning techniques, business succession planning, charitable giving, and estate planning for complex assets such as business interests, retirement accounts, real estate, and life insurance, all of which inherently cause tax and planning issues. Pat also represents trustees and beneficiaries on matters relating to estate or trust administration, including estate settlement, fiduciary duties, tax controversies, and disputes.
Pat has lectured members of the state bar on issues such as estate planning for retirement assets, the Nebraska Uniform Trust Code, and estate settlement. Pat was elected to the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) in 2009.
Pat served as a member of the Legislative Study Committee to study and make recommendations about the implementation of the Nebraska Uniform Trust Code. The audiences for these discussions and seminars are primarily members of the Nebraska State Bar Association and Nebraska County Judges Association members as well as University business and law students.
