Jordan Atin Receives Hoffstein Book Prize
At Wednesday’s year end dinner for the Ontario Bar Association Trusts and Estates section, we saw the presentation of the Hoffstein Book Prize.
This annual prize was established by Elena Hoffstein upon her receipt of the 2006 Award of Excellence in Trusts and Estates Law. The intention of the prize is to recognize outstanding contributions to the trusts and estates bar by a younger practitioner.
(Contrary to popular belief, the Hoffstein Book Prize is not a prize for writing a book: the prize IS a book.)
This year’s recipient of the Hoffstein book prize in was Jordan Atin, who in fact DID write a book. He is a co-author of The Family War. He is also a frequent speaker at CLE programs, writes extensively, is a contributor to the text Estate Litigation, and is involved in the OBA. Next year, Jordan is the Chair of the Trusts and Estates Section.
Jordan is Senior Associate Counsel at Hull and Hull. It is a privilege to work with him. He is a remarkable resource, and a wonderful person.
