Adjunct Professor Daniel Vermillion is an associate at the law firm Coblentz, Patch, Duffy and Bass LLP where he works in the estate planning group, utilizing the myriad of techniques that efficiently shift wealth between generations while minimizing tax burdens. He is thrilled to see the discussion of the future of estate taxation (usually buried in the arcane blogs of estate planning) spill over into the national debate regarding taxes and deficits thus thrusting estate planning into the spotlight.
Professor Vermillion received his law degree, with honors, from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, with a Concentration in Tax. He will receive his LL.M. in taxation from New York University in December 2012.
During tax season, Professor Vermillion can be found at UC Hastings, working at Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, often times assisting clients he has worked with since law school.
