The first session on drafting a will is available on the Surrogate’s website.

“The second session goes deeper into this particular portion of wills, trusts and estates and helps interested parties understand the responsibilities of an Executor and also the advantages and drawbacks of this important role in probate,” Darling said.

Tom Torzewski, a well-known estate planning attorney, will join the panel.
