This little film is an excellent example to show your estate planning clients of why their estate plan, i.e., will, is in tip-top shape. Admittedly, however, none of us at Bitter Lawyer are estate planning attorneys, so it may have been the case that even if Mama had had a solid plan in place, it would not have mattered. Any estate planners out there want to chime in about what legal effects her actions would have on her estate? Criminal lawyers?
Factoid: A real lawsuit served as the inspiration for this short.
