Thank you to our South Carolina Bar Convention Sponsor!
About the Seminar
Please join the Probate, Estate Planning and Trust Section for this year’s annual Convention CLE! This intermediate to advanced level seminar will explore recent developments and some of the hottest trends in estate and probate law and practice with an emphasis on practical solutions to emerging problems in these complex areas.
Our opening segment features Robert E. Sumner, IV, Esq. of Butler Snow, LLP who will examine recent trends in fiduciary litigation and provide a general overview of the fiduciary litigation concepts of which all probate, estate planning and trust lawyers should have knowledge.
Next, Tiffany Provence, Esq. of Provence Messervy and W. Howard Buddin, Ph.D. will provide us with a primer on the legal and ethical issues involved in representing an individual with diminished capacity. Dr. Buddin, a Clinical Psychologist who specializes in neuropsychology and routinely preforms neuropsychological assessments to determine an individual’s capacity to make certain decisions, will help us understand, from a medical perspective, what diminished capacity is and how practitioners can identify the warning signs of whether a client has diminished capacity. Ms. Provence will explore the legal and ethical requirements lawyers have once capacity has been identified as an issue.
After a short break, we will revisit Article 5 of the Probate Code, which became effective on January 1, 2019, from on and off the bench now that judges and practitioners have practical experience with the new statutory regime and forms. Colleton County Probate Court Judge Ashley H. Amundson, Associate Probate Judge of Beaufort County Heather R. Galvin, and Lana M. Jamrosyk, Esq. will provide an overview of the Guardianship and Conservatorship process under Article 5 and share lessons that have been learned over the last two years.
