SMCBA Estate Planning & Probate Section – “If You Love Me …”: Studies in Undue Influence and Financial Elder Abuse

By Hoge Fenton | 03.24.2020 | Client Alerts

Hoge Fenton attorneys, Denise E. Chambliss, chair of the firm’s Trust and Estate Litigation Practice Group, and Mallory L. Homewood, Trust and Estate trial attorney, will present on the litigation based on claims of undue influence, capacity contests and financial elder abuse. The live online presentation will discuss the legal nuts and bolts of each of these claims and provide a review of key statues and case law and examples of how these cases play out in the real world of our local probate courts. The speakers will provide practice tips for estate planners to help insulate their estate planning documents from undue influence claims and for litigators to assist in their prosecution and defense of these claims, as well as recommendations about successful uses of the Certification of Independent Review procedure. Please come with your questions, thoughts, and war stories to share with the group!

We welcome ADR Services, Inc as sponsor of this seminar.
