Protect Your Interests In Contested Accountings
As a trustee or the representative of an estate, you are required to account for all assets and liabilities and to make payments to the beneficiaries and heirs. This can be a challenging process even in straightforward cases, but when there is a dispute over the estate, the matter is far more complex. If you are facing estate litigation involving a contested accounting, you need an excellent attorney’s representation.
At Gabor & Marotta LLC, we provide full representation in all fiduciary accountings and challenges of contested accountings. You can rely on our experience with the administration of estates and with all types of New York estate and probate disputes. If a dispute cannot be resolved through negotiation, we will aggressively represent your interests in Surrogate’s Court.
Reviewing And Investigating Estate And Trust Accountings
We assist fiduciaries — executors, administrators and trustees — with contested accountings. Our lawyers will compel an accounting of the estate or trust, if this has not already been done, and review it with you. The accounting will detail the management of the estate’s or trust’s assets. With this information, we will help you determine the best course of action.
You can come to the firm with contested accounting matters that involve:
- Investigating missing estate assets (discovery and “turn over” proceedings)
- Judicial settlement of accounts
- Recovering assets and returning them to the estate or trust
- Asserting claims against the estate
- Defending claims against the estate
Our attorneys have earned a reputation for their successful work with complex estate and probate litigation. Our attorneys take the time to explain complex procedures to family members. Many of our cases are multi-million dollar estates, but some are the simple transfer of a parents home pursuant to a will, or Medicaid trust.
