Greg Hayes was quoted in an article,"$100,000 Probate Bills? Bar Wants Lawmakers to Reduce Estate Fees," in the Connecticut Law Tribune. In the article, Hayes notes that the removal of the probate fee cap has "created a cry of anger and frustration on the part of clients and their advisers." In fact, the increase in probate fees in addition to taxes is prompting people to consider moving to another jurisdiction, like Florida.
