Pierce Atwood Attorneys Presenters at Maine State Bar Association Elder Law and Estate Planning Institute

Pierce Atwood attorneys Molly Liddell, Eric Wycoff, and Griff Leschefske will participate in a two-day program sponsored by the Maine State Bar Association's Elder Law and Trusts & Estates Sections.

On May 6, firm partners Eric Wycoff and Griff Leschefske will present the program, “Contested Probate Litigation: Risks for the Estate Planning Practitioner.” Attendees will learn about the substantive and strategic risks that arise in contested probate litigation and best practices for addressing and reducing those risks.

On May 7, Molly Liddell, Chair of Pierce Atwood’s Trusts & Estates Practice Group and a member of the event’s planning committee, will participate in a discussion on “The Maine Uniform Trust Decanting Act: Understanding the New Tool in a Trustee’s Toolbox.” This program will address common law decanting, provide an overview of the Act, and review practice examples of how the Act can be used to modify otherwise irrevocable trusts that have become outdated or otherwise problematic.
