Delaware County Judge Spicer to speak at PLI
The Honorable Kenneth J. Spicer of Delaware County Probate/Juvenile Court will be a featured speaker for the upcoming Probate Law Institute on April 26 from 8:45 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Because of the growth of Delaware County and its close proximity to Franklin County, the institute chose to highlight Judge Spicer, bringing a northern perspective to the well-established institute. Elected in 1993, Judge Spicer will update registrants with the latest in case law regarding probate matters and estate planning. Serving the fastest-growing county in Ohio, Judge Spicer is known for his innovative docketing provisions as well as inventive programs such as the Volunteer Guardianship Program in Probate Court.
During the lunch hour of the institute, John Federico of HMU Consulting will dazzle attendees with a technology demonstration: how lawyers can use a digital voice recorder to dictate information and then use the software Dragon Naturally Speaking to automatically transcribe their voice recordings. A free lunch for the institute will be provided by CBS Agency. Pre-registration is required to be assured a lunch.
In addition to the lunch demonstration, Barron K. Henley of HMU Consulting will address technology available for the probate/estate planning practitioner including estate planning document drafting systems, probate forms, fiduciary accounting, tax preparation, tax forms and other estate planning/elder law planning software during the afternoon session. The idea is to make the attendees aware of what's out there to help attorneys become more efficient, what it looks like and what cost is involved in order to keep up with technology.
