Representing estates in wrongful death and personal injury actions, and successfully compromising and distributing the settlements of those actions in the Supreme Court and Surrogates Court is often a daunting task for the trial lawyer. Likewise, representing an incapacitated person in a personal injury action and successfully concluding the case requires the coordination of the trial court and the guardianship court. 

 

Spend an evening with the Judges who decide and can help you navigate your way through the process.

 

We are honored to have an all-star panel of jurists to discuss these and other issues: Hon. Peter J. Kelly (Surrogate Queens County), Hon. Brandon Sall (Surrogate Westchester County), Hon. Ellen M. Spodek (Supreme Court, Kings County) & Hon Charles M. Troia (Supreme Court, Guardianship Part Richmond County).

 

We will present real life scenarios to our panel to walk us through the process required to successfully bring and resolve your cases and to discuss common issues that often cause unnecessary delays in final resolution.
