Will Contests & Estate Litigation
Sometimes, following a person’s death, there is conflict as to the validity of deceased’s Last Will & Testament or other last wishes, who is entitled to inherit from the deceased, the amount of inheritance to certain survivors, the value of the deceased’s estate, who should act as the estate’s representative, how the estate should be administered, what the estate’s representative should do, and a host of other issues concerning the deceased’s property and last wishes. Often times, these conflicts result in difficult litigation amongst family members in New York’s Surrogate’s Court. In such a situation, an experienced estate trial attorney is essential to effective representation.
Russo, Scamardella and D’Amato's lawyers combine their extensive knowledge and experience of substantive estate law and litigation to produce superior representation to people embroiled in contested estate matters.
