Trusts, Estates & Probate Committee
The Trusts, Estates and Probate Committee
focuses in the areas of estate planning, estate settlement, elder law, Medicaid
planning, conservatorships, powers of attorney and advance directives, estate
taxes, and probate court practice issues.
The goals of the Committee are to provide a
forum for lawyers in the greater New Haven area to discuss current practice
issues, to provide updates on recent developments in the law and to organize
CLE courses on a wide array of topics related to this practice area.
Committee generally meets on a monthly basis between the months of September
and May. Lunch meetings offer varying formats, including collegial roundtable
discussions, guest speakers, and CLEs. An annual cocktail reception offers
members the opportunity to interact socially with local probate court judges
