I have written and answer twice but I am not sure if you are receiving it. Did it arrive? Thank you.
So sorry. A trustee of an estate of $250,000 asked what he needed to do to wind up his mother's estate. I said that he needed a receipt release and indemnification. He is trying to keep fees down. I haven't done T&E work in years. Thank you, Ed
Ellen: The Blumberg forms tend to be very brief. I think I need to protect this person more because one or two of the heirs are contentious. Any thoughts? Ed
Ellen: I think you are right. Better to get released from everything than too many little things that might not include some unforeseen items.
Do you practice in the city?
