Bronx New York Dispute Resolution Lawyer
During the probate or administration of an estate numerous sources for conflict can appear and create tension and the possibility of litigation for heirs, relatives and other concerned parties. Mediation is an efficient tool for the establishment of agreements that will address those potential sources of tension and help all involved parties avoid the costs, stress and delays in the distribution of assets that can occur when there is conflict over an estate.
I am Richard Sussman. I have been a certified mediator for 15 years and a practicing attorney for over 25 years. I am experienced at mediating agreements that create the equitable distribution of assets and avoids conflict.
How Is Mediation Better Than Litigation for Estate Related Conflicts?
Conflict among heirs, relatives and interested parties during the probate or administration of an estate can lead to excessive costs as lawyers fight each other over years in the courtroom. The time spent fighting the probate or administration of the estate delays the disbursement of the assets. Lastly, any issues that go before the court are decided by the court. Your ability to have a direct say on the distribution of assets ends once a lawsuit is filed.
Effective mediation can help in probate and estate administration cases to avoid conflict before it even begins. Mediation can have a role in situations where there is a will and situations with no will. I provide the people concerned with a process that will allow what matters most to them to be addressed.
