Jackson Walker partner Michelle Rosenblatt recently presented at the Civil Litigation Section CLE for the Austin Bar Association. The one-hour course, entitled “Navigating the World of Contested Probate Proceedings and Fiduciary Litigation: A Guide for Litigators on the Ins and Outs of Probate Court and Fiduciary Litigation,” provided an overview of powers of attorneys, wills, and trusts, then reviewed how planners such as Michelle draft to avoid litigation. The CLE also concentrated on issues involving how to address drafting errors, the fiduciary and other duties of executors and trustees, practical and legal aspects of removing fiduciaries, and document construction and interpretation.
The Civil Litigation Section is the oldest and largest of the 22 Austin Bar Association sections. Every month, the Section’s Board of Directors presents an hour-long CLE program. For more information about the May CLE, view the event details.
