Probate Institute to Sharpen Lawyers’ Skills

Albuquerque, N.M.—Probate is a process by which property of a decedent is retitled. As with any legal proceeding, the technical aspects to probate and trust administration are important to the probate attorney. These technicalities will be addressed at the 2010 Probate Institute, Sept. 23, at the State Bar Center. This continuing legal education session is designed for those attorneys practicing probate law.

Featured speakers include Gregory W. MacKenzie, Eric Lyon Burton, Barbara J. Buck, Ruth O. Pregenzer, Susan K. Tomita, Marjorie A. Rogers, Kurt A. Sommer, Kenneth C. Leach, Thomas L. Popejoy, Jr., Randolph L. Hamblin.

Critical time factors, notification of creditors, guidance to trustees, filing of documents, consideration of real estate and estate taxes all need to be handled expertly and efficiently—the goal of those with the expert knowledge and advice needed to help the process go smoother with as little extra stress as possible.
