Surrogate’s Court Litigation

The McCarthy Fingar Team

McCarthy Fingar is one of the leading trusts and estates litigation law firms in White Plains, the Lower Hudson Valley and throughout the metropolitan New York region. Supplemented by the expertise of our Trusts & Estates, Business Litigation and Appellate Practice groups, our lawyers represent clients in litigation matters before the New York Surrogate’s Court and the New York Supreme Court. We represent fiduciaries (executors, trustees and guardians) and actual or prospective beneficiaries of estates and trusts in a variety of contested proceedings, including Will & Trust Contests; Property Turnover Proceedings; Fiduciary Removal Proceedings; Contested Accountings; Spousal Rights Proceedings; Kinship Proceedings; and Will or Trust Construction Proceedings.

Trials and Settlements in Estate & Trust Cases

McCarthy Fingar's lawyers are often called upon to serve as trial counsel in the most complex estates and trusts. However, in the Surrogate’s Court, the court and its personnel often encourage clients to settle their disputes without a trial. A settlement before trial is reached only after careful consideration of the important economic and tax consequences of such settlements.
