2016 Trusts & Estates Symposium
3 hours CLE

The symposium examines recent changes in California and federal law that significantly impact probate litigation and estate planning, and offers a scholarly and pragmatic guide for success in seeking fee awards in probate matters.

Panel 1:
Past Imperfect: Supreme Court Greenlights the Admission of Extrinsic Evidence in Will Reformation Actions

In Estate of Duke (2015) 61 Cal.4th 871, the Supreme Court reconsidered the historical rule that extrinsic evidence is inadmissible to reform an unambiguous Will. The Supreme Court concluded that the categorical bar on extrinsic evidence in such cases -- dating back to common law and codified in the California Probate Code -– was not justified. Now, an otherwise unambiguous Will may be reformed if clear and convincing evidence establishes that the Will contained a mistake in expressing the testator's intent.

Panel 2:
Brave New (Estate Planning) World

Covers practical advice about drafting revocable trusts in light of historically high estate tax exemptions and Federal and California capital gains tax rates, including pros and cons of bypass trusts, flexibility to obtain a step-up in basis on death, revisiting formula gifts to children and grandchildren, the use of Clayton QTIPs, portability of estate tax exemption, and post-mortem fixes.

Panel 3:
Show Me the Money: Insights on Requests for Attorney's Fees

Success with fee petitions is so important to the private practitioner, but many lawyers neglect the scholarship and skimp on polished advocacy. This panel, including a private practitioner, a judge, and an attorney from the Probate Court, discuss what it takes to succeed in filing fee petitions for legal services before the court.
