William M. Wright – founder and of counsel attorney with Wright Beamer, PLC – recently taught a seminar at the Probate and Estate Planning Institute’s sessions in Traverse City and Plymouth. The Institute, which is sponsored by the Institute of Continuing Legal Education (ICLE), drew participating attorneys from across the State of Michigan and beyond. Wright, who speaks frequently for ICLE, presented a course titled “Administration of Estates and Trusts with Unique Assets: The Sequel.” Building on his popular topic from last year’s Institute, Wright analyzed the issues involved when a personal representative or a trustee tries to dispose of difficult estate assets such as firearms, medical marijuana, cash, alcohol or legally protected items. As in years past, Wright received glowing reviews from Institute participants impressed by his energetic and instructive presentation.

Mr. Wright is a member of the Probate and Estate Planning Section of the State Bar of Michigan.
