SMBA Probate and Trust Section Presents

Outer Boundaries: The Perplexing Tale of Standing in Probate Court

This presentation will explore the boundaries of standing in probate court, which varies from type of proceeding and/or petition.  We will specifically cover standing for conservatorship establishment, substituted judgment, and Probate Code Section 850 petitions; trust petitions including trust contests; and power of attorney proceedings, will contests, elder abuse claims, and elder abuse restraining orders.  The new Doolittle case will be covered in a discussion of whether the Trustee, who may have standing to defend a Trust Contest, is authorized to do so.  And the same will be explored for personal representative defending a Will Contest.  The presentation will end with a thorny hypo to work through to test your knowledge.  

Speakers:  Lauriann Wright, Esq., Wright Kim Douglas, ALC, Glendale and Robert Eroen, Esq., Eroen Law Firm, PLC, Los Angeles.
