Jessica Kometz to Present on Differing Perspectives Relating to Capacity and Undue Influence


Bassford Remele Attorney Jessica Kometz will present on the panel “Perspectives on Those Notorious Red Flags - A Dialogue Between Estate Planners and Estate Litigators" for the Minnesota State Bar Association Probate, Trusts and Estates Section on Thursday, February 23, 2023.

  • Issues regarding capacity and undue influence are well-known to both estate planners and estate litigators. That said, the perspective can be very different if you are a planner who is working with a client on their estate plan versus a litigator who examines a fact pattern after the planning has been done. This seminar will be a frank discussion between practitioners across the spectrum with the goal of informing everyone’s practice for the better.
