We're halfway through 2017 and have covered a lot of probate issues on our blog. We thought this would be a good time to look back and review the themes and issues we've been writing about for the last six months. Fortunately for us - and very unfortunately for the executors, trustees, administrato...

We write and talk a lot about valuations during the probate process. We tend to take the valuation process a little for granted. After all, usually it's 'get the asset appraised, maybe a few times to be safe, then move on'. It's not always that easy, however. Figuring out what something is worth at...

We work with probate and wills and estates every day. Every time we think we've seen it all, something new comes up.

They do shar...

We, obviously I think, see a lot of disputes during the probate process. It's part of what we do day by day. We've been running a series of workshops lately with hospice workers all over the Greater Atlanta area. They ask a lot of questions about family disputes because they see it and they see the ...

About Signing

A quick note about something that seems simple but always seems to get a big reaction at our workshops when we bring it up. It doesn't get laughs or comments, just a lot of people shifting in chairs and giving each other that ‘boy, have we all been through this’ look. That happens when we talk...
