Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A clearly-written guide for someone who just found out that he or she is executor or trustee of an estate. Factors to consider, questions to ask and checklists to consult may all add up to the authors' laudable goal of ‘less billable hours with your attorney.’”—The Dallas Morning News
 
“Attorneys Plotnick and Leimberg have substantially updated their clear, comprehensive manual for executors and trustees of an estate... The new edition shines in its use of sample documents and checklists. It also addresses the psychological aspects of death and of being an executor… An excellent and handy book.”—Library Journal

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.
