Highlight

Orders in an unsupervised probate are appealable if they resolve all of a creditor's claims against an estate.
Technical words should be construed in a lay sense if the testator demonstrates an intent to do so from the language of the will.
If possible, all parts of the will must be harmonized to give every word and phrase effect.
