Course Description

From the outside looking in, New Jersey Estate Administration seems to be a straightforward process. However, it isn’t as simple as it looks. Attorneys who decide to practice estate administration must be well-versed in the steps involved and the critical issues that may come up.

This course will provide an in-depth case study highlighting a typical New Jersey Estate Administration Process. The presenter, Jesse Hynes, will point out many of the common critical issues, and some rarer ones as well. This course will provide an attorney with the ins and outs of a typical process, as well as the tools to recognize up front what potential issues you may face before taking on a case.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the basic Estate Administration timeline
  2. Identify both common and uncommon critical issues in Estate Administration
  3. Discuss ways to make your Estate Administration Practice more efficient
