Discovery and privilege : litigation in wills, trusts, estates and guardianships

Uncategorized • May 31, 2013

Discovery can be voluminous when litigating matters involving wills, trusts, estates and guardianships. Often, the other side may seek documents which they want you to produce, but which may not be required to be produced. As an example of this is when you have documents which are protected by the attorney-client or work product privilege. Knowing when to file a so called “privilege log” is important . A recent case from the 4th District Court of Appeals in West Palm Beach, Florida spoke to this issue, although it is not a matter involving wills, trusts, estates and guardianships.
