Teleconference Highlights

“Electronic Wills and Recent Legislative Activity: Yesterday’s Techie Youth Are Now Today’s Testators

Kyle B. Gee, Attorney at Law, Schneider Smeltz Spieth Bell LLP

August 15th
Noon ET – 60 Minutes

In 2013, an Ohio judge admitted to probate a Will written entirely with an electronic stylus pen on a Samsung Galaxy tablet and later signed electronically by the testator and witnesses.  In 2017, the concept of an electronic Will or “e-Will” has become a hot topic with the help of a for-profit company seeking to procure favorable legislation in Florida and beyond.  Not all agree that electronic Will legislation as being proposed is a good idea.  Do you?

Kyle Gee will provide background into the concept of electronic wills by explaining factors leading to their creation by emerging generations.  He will also summarize electronic will cases from around the world.  Kyle will share reasons proponents are pushing for enactment of electronic Will statutes and the concerns raised by those in opposition.  Learn More
