Archer partner Steven K. Mignogna has authored Estate and Trust Litigation 2020, the fully updated, comprehensive third edition of the authoritative text on New Jersey probate litigation. The book is now available from the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education. Surrogates and Probate Judges across New Jersey have relied regularly on the prior editions of this treatise.
A nationally recognized authority on estate and trust litigation, Mr. Mignogna serves as the Chair of Archer’s Estate and Trust Litigation Practice Group. He is the highly regarded author of previous editions of this book and related publications, and is a well-known speaker in the industry.
This new treatise revises the second edition with added chapters and forms and includes substantial updates of the law – court decisions, statutes, and court rules. Mr. Mignogna provides practitioners with everything needed to successfully prepare for and litigate an estate matter.
New for the 2020 edition are the extensive treatment of the Uniform Trust Code as implemented by the New Jersey courts and a new chapter on claims against attorneys (legal malpractice and similar claims).
Included at the end of each chapter are numerous sample forms that can save valuable hours of typing and drafting time. The treatise also comes with a CD-ROM that contains the sample forms in electronic format.
