NEW e-book Available Now! Oosterhoff Blogs on Estates & Trusts – Volume 1

Oosterhoff Blogs on Estates & Trusts – Volume 1 is a compilation of 62 blogs on a wide range of estate, trust and related subjects written by Albert H. Oosterhoff between 2016 and 2021 and published to the Whaley Estate Litigation Partners Blog site.

Oosterhoff Blogs on Estates & Trusts - Volume 1

The blogs do not simply review new cases and statutes, but usually provide extensive historical background. Case and statute critiques are provided when they run counter to established principles, or do not go far enough in reforming the law. The blogs are often of considerable length and often deal with topics that are somewhat obscure and are not otherwise easily accessible.

These blogs are now published in a convenient e-book format as a collection and the result is a unique and useful resource specific to Estate, Trust and related law.

The e-book is available for purchase from Apple Books, Amazon Kindle and Kobo for $19.99.
