Estate Litigation: A Solid Reputation in Estate Matters

The firm represents fiduciaries (trustees, guardians, executors) and beneficiaries of trusts and estates in a wide range of proceedings in Surrogate’s Court and Supreme Court. We have obtained positive results for our clients in a wide range of litigated matters, including will contests involving allegations of fraud and undue influence, proceedings involving spousal rights, contested accounting proceedings, fiduciary removal proceedings, guardianship proceedings, proceedings against fiduciaries for damages or surcharges owed as a result of the fiduciary’s malfeasance, and other matters.

Because of our extensive trial skill, experience, and reputation, we are often called upon by other lawyers when estate matters become contentious and require litigation. In such circumstances, we work very closely with the referring lawyer and his or her client, so as to maintain and strengthen the referring lawyer’s relationship with the client and obtain the best possible result, in what are often very trying and painful circumstances for all involved.
