Publication: Probate Wars of the Rich & Famous: An Insider’s Guide to Estate Planning and Probate Litigation

Russell J. Fishkind, a partner in the Personal Wealth, Estates and Trusts Practice, wrote this book that provides insider details of the estate disputes that followed the deaths of celebrities such as Michael Jackson, Anna Nicole Smith and Leona Helmsley, among others. Russell writes about how family members fight over their deceased loved one’s assets and identifies the five universal factors that caused such disputes.

The book provides estate planning insights to help individuals plan their estates without causing litigation. If probate litigation cannot be avoided, however, the book also offers lessons about how to deal with such disputes. In addition to Probate Wars, Russell has written Legacy of a Lifetime, a layman's guide to understanding estate matters, and co-wrote J.K. Lasser Pro's™ Estate Business Succession Planning – A Legal Guide to Wealth Transfer.
