Estate Litigation


Family disputes, challenges to the performance of a fiduciary and disputes with local tax authorities are just some of the circumstances that can disrupt the otherwise smooth disposition of an estate, resulting in the need for litigation. Given the serious and unexpected issues that can sometimes arise during estate litigation, only an estate planning attorney with specialized estate litigation skills will do.

Ruskin Moscou Faltischek has acclaimed legal expertise in estate litigation, having represented fiduciaries and beneficiaries in some of the largest and most complex litigations in the New York region. We handle cases involving probate of wills, trust validity, contested accountings, estate asset recovery, construction matters, spousal right of election proceedings and controversies pertaining to tax-related issues.

Although a number of law firms handle trust and estate litigation, Ruskin Moscou Faltischek is one of the few law firms with a legal team devoted exclusively to this highly specialized practice of the law.  Our attorneys are experienced in litigating estate-related matters, including those that are litigated in the Surrogate’s Court, the Appellate Division, Federal District Court and the Court of Appeals.

Protecting our clients’ interests is of paramount importance. To that end, we offer a deep understanding of estate law combined with the skill and sensitivity essential to achieving the desired outcome.
