The California probate process speech

I feel thankful that NBI and other organizations consistently ask me to come talk about estate and probate law.  Yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking for almost two hours on probate law to a group of attorneys and paralegals. My topic outline is below. I get a real charge out of talking to a group and sharing my knowledge. Should your organization need a speaker please do not hesitate to reach out to us!  -John
