Wield the Dead Man's Rule Like a Pro

The Dead Man's Rule is designed to protect the estate of a deceased person from fraudulent claims made by an individual who had engaged in transactions with the decedent. When it applies, the Rule controls the competency to testify about anything occurring prior to the death of the decedent. It is crucial that attorneys practicing in civil litigation are familiar with this complicated rule and how it works.
