Most recently, I've created a 'Trusts and Estates' committee as a member of Collaborative Practice Silicon Valley. We are currently creating interdisciplinary protocols, sign-on agreements, and participation agreements in preparation for an Interdisciplinary Trusts and Estates Training in September. We also hope to attract a number of Collaborative professionals interested in this area to our practice group.
