Jeff works with probate, trust and estate attorneys to resolve all manner of disputes. These cases are ideal for mediation. Unlike some business relationships, most family relationships will continue after any particular dispute is resolved. Adjudications are unlikely to bring a family any real resolution of conflict.
Jeff mediates estate disputes in a careful, compassionate, and deliberate manner. He understands the stress a loss places on loved ones and works hard to forge settlements, whenever possible, that deal responsibly with the emotional as well as the financial aspects of the conflict. Litigation can be especially difficult when it pits family member against family member. Jeff's probate, trust and estate mediation practice provides a less antagonistic environment where everyone will be heard.
As a litigator, Jeff handled cases with estates worth millions upon millions of dollars, including litigation over the Estate of Armand Hammer. He continues to use that expertise today as a mediator.
When you need to call upon a powerful sensitivity to help move your clients toward closure, contact Jeff.
