Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was misled by the title and description to think that this was a book that would help me understand the probate process and help me work more effectively with my lawyer. The authors are knowledgeable, but the information is poorly organized. The level of detail isn't particularly useful either - relatively basic but written in a very technical manner so that it seems too advance for a layperson.
