Highlight

The district court is considered an expert in determining the value of reasonable attorney's fees for services rendered to an estate, and its decision will not be overturned on appeal absent a clear abuse of discretion.
Professional corporations organized for the purpose of engaging in the practice of law provide limited personal liability only for obligations of the professional corporation that are unrelated to the rendering of the professional legal service.
