Greg Lipper is a litigator in the Washington, D.C. law firm of Clinton and Peed, primarily handling criminal and constitutional cases.  Today, he shares his interest in an aspect of estate planning that many people forget about:  how to make sure your pets are taken care of after your death, whether you have a dog, a cat, or even an alligator.   This topic was addressed recently at a panel of the D.C. Bar with Greg and two other attorneys, who focus on all aspects of estate planning. See panelists Julie Goodwin Weber  and Judith Zimmerman.
Greg and Barry discuss and reflect on celebrity pets, setting up trusts for animals, and even what judges might do with provisions in wills which ask for pets to be euthanized.
