Praise for Julie Jason's Guide to Connecticut Probate
Demystified The Probate Process
"Julie Jason is that rare writer, a reader-friendly expert who presents vital information about law and personal finance in a clear, easy-to-grasp manner. She has not only demystified the probate process, but also given examples that show the great benefit that a little knowledge and preparation can have for your family and heirs."
Jim Zebora, Business Editor, The Advocate / Greenwich Time
Her Message is Clear
"Many writers have provided "how to" lessons for managing the probate process. Julie Jason goes beyond that. This is for the reader who has studied the "how to" and then sets out to do it. She addresses the problems of the complicated cases, the variations from the norm, and the difficult people. Her message is clear, and her style permits an easy read."
Judge James J. Lawlor,
Connecticut Probate Administrator

Thanks to Julie Jason and her Guide to Connecticut Probate every Connecticut family can plan for an orderly transition upon death or incapacity.
