The Surrogate’s Court hears cases involving the affairs of decedents, including the probate of wills and the administration of estates.

Litigation in the Surrogate’s Court may involve a contested probate proceeding (in which a will is offered for probate), a contested estate administration proceeding (where there is no will), or a dispute involving how the estate is being administered or how assets are being distributed.

Our attorneys have experience throughout the Surrogate’s Court system, including Nassau County, Suffolk County, Queens County, Kings County and New York County. We have represented parties in various litigated estate matters, including contested probate proceedings, spousal right of election cases and contesting accountings.

Whether you wish to object to the probate of a will, or you are facing litigation as the executor or administrator of an estate, an attorney experienced in the area of estate litigation in the Surrogate’s Court can advise you and help you with the matter.
