Estate Litigation (2011)
The practice of estate lawyers transcends will and trust drafting and
estate planning to include of necessity some knowledge of and
familiarity with the substance, procedures and customs of litigating key
matters in Surrogate’s Court. This course discusses and highlights
hands-on litigation strategies and approaches, and the often unique
Surrogate’s Court rules governing litigation in that court, in
probate and accounting contests and in miscellaneous proceedings.
The course provides a thorough review of the substantive law governing
litigation in Surrogate’s Court. Experienced panelists share their
experience and knowledge of the practical and procedural aspects of
estate litigation matters. Attention focuses on tactics, motion practice
and other practical concerns.
