The attorneys in Pietragallo’s Estate & Trust Litigation; Estate Planning and Administration Group combine our experience in the courtroom and an understanding of the law to provide outstanding service in these personal and often sensitive matters. We represent beneficiaries, trustees, administrators and executors in pursuing and defending claims involving the exercise of fiduciary duties and the administration and distribution of estates and trusts.
Pietragallo’s attorneys recognize that disputes involving fiduciaries, estates and trusts often arise from personal family matters and we perform each engagement with the appropriate professionalism.
We have secured favorable results for our clients at every level – from trial in the Orphans’ (Surrogate) Court through appeal in the Supreme Court – over the past 30 years.
Recent engagements include:
In addition to the litigation aspects of our Orphans’ (Surrogate) Court practice, Pietragallo’s attorneys can create estate plans for clients of all sizes. Also, when it comes time to administer the estate and/or trust, we can handle every aspect of the administration, from the opening of the estate, marshalling assets, preparing and filing all necessary tax returns, making distribution and closing administration. We work with clients whose assets are substantial or modest, emphasizing efficiency and timeliness.
