Attorney's Fees and Fee Shifting in Probate Proceedings

SPEAKERS
Steven P. Braccini | Partner, Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton
Kendal Fletcher | Associate, Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton

Local courts appear to have an increased willingness to award attorney’s fees to a prevailing party in probate proceedings. The presenters will examine this trend, as well as provide an overview of both the guidelines the courts use in awarding attorney’s fees as well as best practices for fee petition/applications.

Check-in begins at 11:45 AM; the Speakers begin at 12:00 PM.
