The idea and the greater part of the original edition of this book were the work product of Paul F. Cullum III. He received much help from his mentor, Michael R. Griffinger, and from his then colleagues at Gibbons LLC, Cathleen T. Butler and Rita M. Danylchuk, but he conceived the structure and crafted the details.

At the time of his death in 2012, Cullum was a partner in LeClairRyan’s Litigation Group, where his complex litigation practice focused on estate litigation and general commercial business litigation. He represented clients in numerous estate and intestate litigation matters concerning many of the areas cited in this book. In addition, he represented trustees and clients in guardianship and conservatorship proceedings.
