Allan J. Gibber, Esq. and Michaela C. Muffoletto, Esq.
For over four decades, Gibber on Estate Administration has been the “go-to” guide for lawyers who handle estates of decedents, and is the most sought-after and definitive book on Maryland estate administration. Publishing in May 2021, this newest edition will replace the 2017 edition, and will cover practical non-legal as well as legal considerations and includes:
• Clear instructions on procedure
• Examples of all the necessary forms (the book covers over 150 forms)
• Key excerpts from Maryland estate law, with comments, notes, and practice tips
• Relevant case history
• Relevant opinions of the Attorney General
• Comments on legislative activity where needed
• Reference citations when including full text would be cumbersome
The NEW 7TH Edition significantly expands the treatise with thorough references to new case law and statutory amendments through 2020. The revised text also reflects new rates and statutory amounts, and includes new and updated samples of all the official forms throughout the volume.
Gibber’s NEW 7th Edition is an indispensable resource for the bar, the bench, and the Registers of Wills of this state, and will guide you to being a better estate attorney.
“… an authoritative treatise, a comprehensive checklist,
a helpful forms book, and a source of useful suggestions,
all written with an eye to the practical.”
“… Mr. Gibber is particularly qualified to deal by virtue
of his service as special consultant to the Rules Committee
on the Probate Rules project.”
Melvin J. Sykes, Esq.
