Washington Law of Wills and Intestate Succession

Publication Year: 3d. ed. 2018   Publication Type: Deskbook


In this third edition, Mark Reutlinger, Professor Emeritus of Law, Seattle University School of Law, takes a fresh look at the changes in the legal landscape of probate law, where “spouses” now includes “registered domestic partners” and the “slayer statute” now applies to “abusers” as well as slayers. He has updated citations and explained reinterpretations or clarifications of the law by Washington courts since publication of the 2006 second edition.

Professor Reutlinger’s one-volume book remains a comprehensive treatise on Washington probate law as articulated by Washington courts. If you practice in this area, you’ll want to have it at ready reach!
