Jay L. Dolgin, Principal, Estate and Tax Lawyer, also practicing Corporate Law

Jay L. Dolgin was born in Chicago, Illinois.  He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor of Science Degree and received his Juris Doctor Degree from DePaul University.  He was admitted to the Illinois bar, the Florida Bar, the U. S. Court, Northern District and the U. S. Tax Court.  He is a member of the American Bar Association, Illinois State and Florida State Bar Associations, the Chicago Bar Association, the Chicago Estate Planning Council, the North Shore Estate Planning Council, the Professional Advisory Committee of the Jewish United Fund, National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, the Illinois Elder Law Association and the Illinois Guardianship Association.  He has also been an Adjunct Professor of Law at John Marshall Law School where he taught estate planning and will drafting and trusts and estates.  He concentrates his practice in the areas of estate and tax planning, asset protection, general probate, deceased estates, guardianships and trust administration; general corporate, including business planning, business transactions and succession planning.

Jay Dolgin has practiced estate and tax planning as well as its multifaceted nuances for many years in Chicago and Florida.  Additionally, he has represented closely-held family businesses including professional business corporations (attorneys, accountants, architects and engineers, medical service corporations, manufacturing, distributing, restaurant(s), food distributors, professional service corporations, and retail).

In addition to creative tax planning enabling families to transfer substantial value to their children at little or no gift tax cost, Jay has been especially successful in mediating complex family relationships pre- and post-death.

Jay has handled many complex family situations where children and step-parents have adverse interests which he has resolved without the need of court intervention. 

Jay has also successfully handled many estate tax audits but is particularly proud of having created the strategy wherein a decedent’s estate owned 50% of a closely held business having $37,000,000 in cash, was valued at $7,000,000 and settled with the IRS for $8,000,000 value.
