Estate Mediation/Litigation – Successful Resolution

Represented the widow of a prominent NYC attorney in connection with a settlement between our client, her daughter and stepchildren over the proper distribution of the estate's assets among them. The child and stepchildren were unhappy with the expressed terms of the decedent's Will, and sought abatement of the bequests to our client. We successfully resolved the matter, avoiding lengthy and expensive proceedings in Surrogate's Court.
