Experience. Dedication. Compassionate 

Our approach to New York trust and estate litigation and will contests is to offer large-firm quality, small-firm attentiveness, and cost-conscious representation. We strive to provide "Concierge-Level Service" to our trust and estate litigation clients because we understand the grief, stress, conflict, fear, uncertainty, and outrage that many of them experience. They need an attorney who is both a strong, experienced courtroom advocate and a caring, compassionate human being. That combination of qualities has become the hallmark of our trust and estate litigation practice. Where appropriate, and upon client request, we offer a multidisciplinary collaborative approach, working with a psychologist, family business succession expert, and professionals from our firm to defuse and resolve estate controversies before they explode into costly, protracted litigation.
