Attorney to present at Notre Dame Tax and Estate Planning Institute

Lipson Neilson shareholder Sandra D. Glazier will present “Ethical Considerations in Representing Vulnerable Adults and Fraud within the Family” at the 44th Annual Notre Dame Tax and Estate Planning Institute.

An AV Preeminent rated attorney, Glazier has been selected as a “Michigan Super Lawyer” by Thomson Reuters and has been recognized as a “Top Lawyer” by DBusiness, in the areas of probate, estate and family law.
