Armstrong Teasdale, a law firm with offices across the United States, proudly announces the addition of Jill M. Palmquist to its partnership effective Feb. 1, 2018.
“Jill is a highly skilled trusts and estates lawyer,” said John Beulick, managing partner at Armstrong Teasdale. “She is consistently a strong performer. We are proud to recognize her commitment to our clients and elevate her to partner status.”
Palmquist previously focused on providing counsel to a select group of clients and will expand her practice as a partner of the firm. She is a member of the Corporate Services practice group and focuses primarily on estate planning, including wealth management and gift and estate tax issues. For families and individuals, she utilizes instruments such as powers of attorney, wills, revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts (including irrevocable life insurance trusts, irrevocable grantor trusts and charitable trusts) and limited partnerships. Palmquist also has experience in dealing with special assets including closely held stock, 401(k) plans, traditional and Roth IRAs, and Section 529 Plans; and in working with situations requiring extra consideration, like planning in the context of a second marriage, special needs trusts and asset protection.
She also works with individual beneficiaries and individuals appointed as agents, personal representatives and successor trustees to properly administer instruments making up an estate plan, including preparing estate, gift and fiduciary income tax returns, funding trusts created at death, making distributions to beneficiaries and opening probate proceedings.
Since 2016, Palmquist has been named among the Missouri/Kansas Super Lawyers® and The Best Lawyers in America® for Trusts and Estates.
Admitted to practice law in Missouri and Illinois, Palmquist earned her J.D., cum laude, from Saint Louis University School of Law and B.A. from the University of Dallas.
