In Estate Planning 101: From Client Intake to the Final Plan, Matt joined three estate planning panelists to guide the audience through the process of litigation that can unfurl in the event of challenges to an estate plan, or attempts to update an estate plan through the judicial process.  Matt spoke principally about the process of litigating a will contest, including pre-filing issues like identification of client(s) and fee shifting opportunities, and the timelines associated with various filings.  He also outlined in detail how to conduct such litigation, including a thorough review of key procedural Rules of Court as well as helpful tips regarding strategy, and the key aspects of pertinent substantive law.
