People v. Sanchez drastically changed the testimony and evidence that experts can give during trial. This ruling presents unique issues in trust and estates litigation, where third-party evidence plays a huge role in the court’s determination. This CLE will review the legal issues, the changes to the scope of expert testimony, and particular challenges facing trust and estates litigators in trial.


  • Discussion of the holding of People v. Sanchez ((2016) 63 Cal.4th 665) and related cases on hearsay evidence and expert testimony
  • What experts will be allowed to testify to regarding medical documents and third-party statements
  • How to outfox opposing counsel with targeted objections and motions in limine
  • Educating the Court on the importance of Sanchez
