The Estate Planning Council of St. Louis (EPCSTL) has announced that Thompson Coburn partner Steve Gorin has been selected as the first ever recipient of the Distinguished Estate Planner Award. This award was presented on June 21, 2021, by EPCSTL leadership during a special virtual luncheon.
Steve has also been elected to the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils (NAEPC) Estate Planning Hall of Fame® for 2020, and is a recipient of the Accredited Estate Planner® (Distinguished) designation for 2020.
EPCSTL will annually grant the Distinguished Estate Planner Award to a member of the Estate Planning Community (EPC) for outstanding contributions in the field of estate planning. Steve was selected because he reflects the following goals for which EPCSTL was organized:
EPCSTL said there were many factors that led to the selection of Steve, including his willingness to step in, last minute, to speak at EPC luncheons. He’s also eager to help community members with questions pertaining to complex estate planning techniques.
The organization also said that Steve’s regular, active participation on various estate planning issues, generous donation of time writing on a variety of estate planning subjects, and guidance in the EPC’s ongoing search for qualified speakers are what make him an exceptional first recipient of the Distinguished Estate Planner Award.
Over the course of his 30-year career, Steve has advised lawyers, accountants and business owners on the best possible tax and estate planning approaches to their transactions. He also crafts estate plans for individuals, keeping in mind their financial security and desire to save income and estate tax. Steve’s quarterly newsletter, "Business Succession Solutions," is considered essential reading for hundreds of CPAs and attorneys, who describe it as "a fantastic contribution to the field."
