Episode Description:

Attorney Ernest H. Hyde interviews Attorney Robert C. Markley and Attorney Francine Traiger Poor on the new Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code slated to go into effect at the end of March, 2012. The law changes everything from terminology, currently used in Massachusetts Estate Planning and Probate of Estates, to the very methods used to probate an estate. The new law is intended to be more detached from the courts and more in the hands of the representatives of the estate and the heirs. “These new changes will put all attorneys on the same level playing field,” said Attorney Hyde. “Whether an attorney has been doing probate work for 30 years or 2 cases, it all changes for everyone,” he continued. The courts and attorneys expect there will be a period of time when things do not move very smoothly, but the law is intended to be more efficient and less cumbersome, which will be well received by both the legal community and the using public.
