Description:
In the modern era, challenges to the probate of a testator’s will are an unfortunate fact of life for many families, however normal or dysfunctional a family may appear, and regardless of the amount of assets in the testator’s estate.  Indeed, the division of a testator’s assets can, and often does, bring out all manner of simmering family disputes, sibling rivalries and provides a forum to litigate various actual and perceived injustices or slights.  This CLE explores the typical objections made to the probate of a testator’s will, and estate planning safeguards that may be considered to prevent the invalid execution of a will and challenges thereto, and certain ethical considerations lawyers should be aware of in dealing with clients who may be the subject of undue influence or have diminished capacity.  Whether you are a transactional lawyer or a litigator, come join our panel of skilled and experienced and estate practitioners for a discussion of strategies and techniques for identifying and hopefully preventing challenges to a testator’s will.
