Estate Litigation Attorney in Brooklyn, NY
A Life Changing State of Affairs
Famous stories of Estate Litigation provide the foundation for many fictional New York stories; a single woman unexpectedly left to become a parent at the request of an unknown will, a wealthy patron surprising a long list of artists with stipends to pursue their artistic lives, non-profits to be created… legacies to be delivered. How about the true story of the famous recluse who left behind a $300 Million Dollar estate, as did Huguette Clark, the daughter of a rich Copper Industrialists. These legal issues can take a long period of time to resolve; and how they will be resolved can be unpredictable. Perhaps you are concerned about how the financial affairs of a wealthy relative or parent are being handled or you believe that the resources of your loved one must be defended from perceived vultures as in the case of Celeste Holm. Whatever the situation, there are ways to avoid your litigation becoming a contemporary version of Jarndyce and Jarndyce.
If your Estate Litigation questions are less focused on gaining access to an estate, and more on what to do to prevent bitter litigation among or between survivors such as siblings, children and/or former spouses, see our help section on Wills.
