Great presentation.


Great probate refresher and learned new things.

I know nothing about probate but this was very informative.

Currently practice in FL; nice to learn similarities and differences.

Very enlightening and helpful whether or not you already have knowledge in the field.

This was a good foundation to probate. I still find it all fairly confusing (as I've never been trained in how to do it properly), but this gave me some good basic insights on where to begin.

Excellent presentation with useful materials.
