Lainie R. Fastman, "The Revocable Trust Revisited."

posted Mar 28, 2017, 3:06 AM by Pete Weinman

Dear RCBA Members,

My article entitled:  “The Revocable Trust Revisited” was published in March by the New York State Bar Association in its “Trusts and Estates Law Section Newsletter,” spring 2017, Vol. 50, No. 1. As so many clients now inquire about revocable trusts, and so many attorneys are drafting them,  it might be of interest to the Bar. Best regards
