When it comes to Wills and Trusts that include family property or money, siblings can quickly become each other’s biggest adversaries. While probate disputes are ostensibly about money, at the core of most sibling feuds are decades of complex and emotional family issues.
This is exactly what attorney Steven Malach faced when representing a client in a Maricopa County Probate Court case that included multiple rental properties and four brothers that did not agree.
In summary, the father died, and his estate plan included a Trust with numerous rental properties that were to be passed on to his four sons. This case included a complete accounting audit of the rental properties and a rather lengthy multi-lawyer mediation.
Representing the nominated trustee son, Steven Malach relied on his 40+ years of experience to help negotiate a favorable settlement for all parties. While each of the sons did not get exactly what they wanted, they all agreed on the solution and settled the case.
