Referee Olson once again invites your questions ahead of his CLE in order to help you avoid common errors and other mistakes in probate administration.  This is not a paint-by-the-numbers lesson in probate, but it will help even the most experienced probate attorney file a matter that is a flawless work of art.  Send your questions to either Kirstin Helmers at or Patty Stotzheim at  As Bob Ross might have said if he were a lawyer, “Anyone can file an almighty filing!”


The Honorable Joel Olson, Probate Court Referee, Ramsey County District Court
