Attorney Lee Laskody :

My clients are in the difficult situation of grieving a loved one, and learning they may be cut out of the estate.  This is often a matter of financial survival for our clients.  There are laws to protect surviving spouses from disinheritance, and it is so satisfying to see my clients receive their fair share of the estate.
