Jocelyn Margolin Borowsky, a fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel ("ACTEC"), practices in the areas of estate planning, probate and estate and trust administration in Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. A large part of her practice involves the review of a client's overall estate plan, preparation of wills and revocable trusts, and where appropriate, implementation of sophisticated trusts, such as lifetime spousal trusts, asset protection trusts, life insurance trusts and dynasty trusts. As an active Delaware practitioner, she routinely advises clients with respect to structuring new Delaware trusts or transferring existing trusts to Delaware and also with respect to Delaware captive insurance companies. Her clients include out-of-state counsel seeking review or advice with respect to Delaware trusts, high net worth families, corporate executives and charitable organizations. She works with closely-held family businesses on issues involving strategic tax and business planning and the creation of private family foundations. She also handles tax controversy matters, including estate and gift tax audits by the Internal Revenue Service and state taxing authorities. She is AV® Preeminent? Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell.
