Decisions:

Matter of Su Ling Chin, (September 25, 2015). In a will contest, where one witness to the will and the attorney draftsperson did not have perfect memory of the execution ceremony and another witness testified that the will was not properly executed, the Court admitted the will to probate after trial, holding that perfect memory was not required and that the Court, as trier of fact, could determine the credibility of the persons testifying at trial. The proponent of the will was represented by Jeffrey L. Nogee, Esq., partner in our trusts and estates department, with the assistance at trial of partner Anna Guiliano, Esq.

Lucille Kowalski Decision, (August 11, 2014) - Partner Jeffrey Nogee was successful in getting a deed issued to a beneficiary under a will where the executor was refusing to do so. In a Surrogate's proceeding, the beneficiary of real property pursuant to a will, successfully petitioned the court to force the transfer of a deed to him despite protests of the executor that the property was part of the Estate and proceeds of sale were needed to pay expenses of the Estate.
