Matthew McMurtrey and Jessica Uzcategui to Speak at 2017 Aviva K. Bobb Advanced Probate Volunteer Panel Attorney Training Symposium
Managing Partner Matthew McMurtrey and Partner Jessica Uzcategui are participating on panels at the 2017 Aviva K. Bobb Advanced Probate Volunteer Panel Attorney Training Symposium presented by the Trusts and Estates Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association. This year’s program will examine conduct of Probate Volunteer Panel attorneys at contested hearings and mediation sessions, based on a fact pattern involving a proposed conservatee being isolated by highly annoying in-laws.
Mr. McMurtrey will discuss preparing witnesses to testify, and preparing for evidentiary hearing that’s not a trial: putting on your best case, and possibly coordinating with other side(s) to expedite.
Ms. Uzcategui will speak on evidentiary considerations of experts, professionals (doctors, privately retained counsel) and possibly memory-impaired, possibly unduly influenced witnesses.
The Symposium is taking place November 18, 2017 at the Sportsmen’s Lodge Events Center in Studio City, CA.
