Ensuring the proper administration of a large estate or trust is a complex and time-consuming process. Often, there are disagreements concerning distribution of property and the true intentions of the deceased. Perhaps you are entitled to part of the estate or trust, or a larger share of the estate or trust, but have been denied your fair share.
When litigation or the threat of litigation occurs during the trust or estate administration process, you need the assistance of an attorney who specializes in the litigation of substantial trust and estate matters. For over thirty-five years, Lewis H. Fishlin has zealously represented estate and trust beneficiaries, executors, administrators and trustees by applying his knowledge of New York estate and trust law to protect his client’s rights and claims.
