The attorney or paralegal finds themselves repeating the same information multiple times throughout the process, which is inefficient, frustrating and costly. Too often the executor and beneficiaries do not understand the process and complain about fees, time and the overall process. This topic will provide tips and tricks to those professionals on the front lines to combat these issues, help provide ways to ensure that the clients are aware of the process as a whole and give guidelines to set realistic goals, deadlines and expectations. In addition, the goal of this material is to give the professionals additional tools to understand, manage and navigate the probate process from start to finish, by providing information and checklists to help manage creditors' claims, important deadlines and keeping track of probate assets. Finally, you will walk away with a clear overall picture of the probate process and a better understanding of how to avoid common problems associated with probate administration.<strong><br /> </strong><br /> <br /> To register for this event, please click <a href="http://www.lorman.com/training/what-all-paralegals-must-know-about-the-probate-process#overview">here</a>.<br />http://www.coleschotz.com?t=39&format=xml&directive=0&stylesheet=rss&records=10Jan Lewis is speaking at the Landlord-Tenant Law Seminarhttp://www.coleschotz.com/?t=40&an=67562&format=xml&p=586025 Oct 2017EventsJan Lewis is speaking at the Landlord-Tenant Law Live CLE Seminar.<br /> <br /> <strong>Event Details:</strong><br /> October 25, 2017 <br /> 8:30 am- 4:30 pm<br /> NYC Seminar and Conference Center<br /> 71 West 23rd Street, Suite 515<br /> New York, NY 10010<br /> <br /> To register for this event please click <a href="http://www.lorman.com/training/landlord-tenant-law-in-new-york?discount_code=L8724981&amp;p=13389&amp;s=direct#overview">here</a>.<br /> <br type="_moz" />http://www.coleschotz.com?t=39&format=xml&directive=0&stylesheet=rss&records=10Susan Usatine is presenting "Creative Cost Control in e-Discovery Expenditures" at Relativity Fest Annual Conferencehttp://www.coleschotz.com/?t=40&an=67733&format=xml&p=586022 Oct 2017Events<p><strong>Relativity Fest 2017</strong><br /> <br /> <strong>Event Details:<br /> </strong>Creative Cost Control in e-Discovery Expenditures<br /> October 22 - 25, 2017<br /> Relativity Fest is an annual conference designed to educate and connect the e-discovery community.
