“For couples who got married in one of the 12 states [that allow same-sex marriage] or D.C., they could now do estate planning like heterosexual couples,” said Janis Cowhey McDonagh, an estate and trust specialist, and East Coast leader of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender practice for Marcum LLP.
