    March 7, 2012 – Still affordable, still accessible, and now available online on Books UnBound®, Wisconsin Probate System covers regular, informal, and summary procedures. Handy worksheets and a master information list help keep client matters on track. As the name implies, this is a comprehensive “system book” with strong emphasis on a practical approach to probate procedures. With this book, your law office can handle probate cases even more capably and efficiently.

    The book is a mainstay of probate practitioners for more nearly 30 years – is now available in its fourth edition. The book has been reviewed and revised by the authors of the third edition, Dean Stange of Michael, Best & Friedrich LLP, and Jennifer D’Amato and Jessica King, both of Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren S.C., all experienced and articulate probate attorneys.

    A detailed roadmap

    If you are new to probate, use the Wisconsin Probate System as a detailed roadmap. If you are more experienced, use it as a thorough, accurate checklist – and as a powerful training tool. Some highlights include:

    • Detailed how-to instructions for each step in the probate process
    • More than 150 forms and sample letters with commentary, instructions, and filled-in samples
    • Checklists and critical date schedules
    • A glossary of probate terms

    As every probate attorney knows, taxes are an integral, often confusing, sometimes complex aspect of probate. Wisconsin Probate System devotes an entire chapter to them, featuring a fictional estate for which the required forms have been prepared, along with detailed commentary and instructions.
