RPC 1.7; Informal Opinion 86-1
Lawyer named as trustee or personal representative in will drafted for client
The Committee reviewed your inquiry concerning requests by clients that you be named by clients as trustee or personal representative in wills and trusts drafted by you. The Committee had previously addressed this in informal opinion 86-1, a copy of which I enclose. The Committee also directed me to call your attention to the Shaughnessy cases cited in the informal opinion and the Estate of Larsen, 103 Wn.2d 517 (1985).
