Lindsey Paige Markus celebrates the anniversary of her successful book, A Gift for the Future

April 19, 2023

Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. congratulates Lindsey Paige Markus, shareholder and practice group leader of the 24-attorney Trusts & Estates group, on the one year anniversary of the publishing of her successful book, A Gift for the Future. Released on Amazon, the book quickly became a #1 Best Seller in legal self-help and #1 new release in many categories.

A natural educator and mentor, Markus recognized the impact a lack of preparation has on families needing to navigate the most basic to more complex estate planning — dealing with probate issues, guardianship, even the shock of discovering the amount of estate taxes owed to federal and state government. The book is informative, understandable and provides a road map for family security and helps readers find a sense of peace, while providing them with complex, innovative options.

Russ Sullivan, who served on the Senate Finance Committee for 14 years as chief tax counsel and staff director, wrote a noteworthy foreward for the book, “A Gift for the Future is an excellent, in-depth guide for estate planning with the current tax code…Markus shows the reader how to get started and explains how to compassionately engage in some of these difficult conversations, all in a readable style. Death and taxes are inevitable for all of us, making this book a wonderful tool for everyone.”

While the most challenging project Markus has undertaken, the process of writing the book was a true labor of love. A Gift for the Future is her way to give back — to those who have mentored her, to clients she has worked with and to those who want to educate themselves prior to making the all-important commitment to work with an estate planning professional. A second edition is planned for the near future.

Licensed in Illinois, Florida and New York, Markus has a national practice.
