These days, my practice focuses almost exclusively on estate litigation, surrogate’s court practice, and adult guardianship. However, I used to do estate planning.

My office created a descent and distribution diagram to aide estate planning clients in visualizing the difference between per capita, per stirpes, and by representation.

If you would like to use a copy in your own practice, feel free to email me. I am happy to send you the document in Microsoft Word format so you can edit and decorate as you wish.

I have checked and double checked its accuracy. Fellow trusts and estates attorneys have checked it for accuracy. It measures up.
