Netflix, Fargo and Narcos
Can it be long before Netflix makes a programme about probate. The body count in some of its programmes like “Fargo” and “Narcos” is stupendous. It must be great for the funeral directors. I suppose in “Better call Saul” we have seen a lawyer reinventing himself as a specialist in “elder law” and we have had a long history of Hollywood wills where a fractured family assembles to hear “the reading”. Real life is not quite so dramatic and it is better to stick with trustworthy professionals. As an executor you have probably had enough drama when you now just want to get the job done efficiently and quickly.
