If you haven’t already heard, Bob Glorch is retiring from the practice of law next week, at the end of 2017.  Bob retires after a 50-year distinguished legal career focused on estate planning.

I had the great fortune of being hired by Bob as a law clerk in 1998 while attending DePaul Law, and two years later, I became Bob’s associate. At the end of 2014, Bob sold the practice to me, while staying on as “Of Counsel” to complete the transition. Bob has now completed his tour of duty and has more than earned his free time to cycle, nap and travel – and anything else he pleases. Happy Retirement Bob!

Over the past few years, I have enjoyed meeting many of Bob’s clients and look forward to meeting more. The office will remain at the same Palatine location where we have served thousands of clients for more than 30 years. And I look forward to meeting many more of you over the coming months and years!

As an aside, blogging has been light over the past several months, but I intend to pick back up in the new year with a series of posts providing an overview and analysis of the new tax bill expected to be enacted very soon. Beyond the headline changes, I expect the new provisions to be significant in some perhaps not-so-obvious ways.

The office will be closed on December 25 and 26 and January 1 and 2. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all!
