Area(s) of Professional Practice CLE Credits: 1.5 

While all are invited, this webinar is specifically designed for Trusts and Estates practitioners and planners, as well as Surrogate’s Court Judges and their staff.  Those who practice in Surrogate’s Court in New York State or expect their clients’ issues will end up there will find this presentation particularly helpful.  Surrogate’s litigation can be drawn out, emotional and highly charged despite the best representation.  Come hear about other options that are available for you and your clients to resolve your pending cases and those that may arise.  Learn about the new Presumptive Mediation program New York State courts are embracing and what low-cost options may be only a phone call or click away to help your clients’ move on from years of turmoil.  You may have
heard of mediation but not thought it was right for you or your clients.   Two Surrogate’s Court Judges, experienced mediators and practitioners will explain why it is time to resolve your Surrogate’s Court cases using mediation.
