Brooklyn Civil Litigation Lawyers

Situations involving estate settlement, difficulties with elder care, or medical benefits, may not always be resolved through arbitration. In some cases, it is necessary to go to court to protect your loved one’s rights or ensure that their final wishes are carried out. It is vital to have a Brooklyn civil litigation lawyer by your side who not only knows the law, but knows the courts as well.

These days, it is not enough to understand the complexities of elder law. Often, it is most beneficial for both parties to settle out of court before an elder law case goes to trial.

This kind of negotiation can be difficult. However, and in the event that your case does go to court, you want someone representing you who is well equipped to protect your rights and preserve your loved one’s legacy. The Brooklyn civil litigation lawyers at Korsinsky & Klein, LLP have the knowledge and experience to handle all types of elder law cases, and see them through from start to finish, getting you the best possible outcome.

We have successfully litigated on behalf of our clients in many areas, including:


When a loved one passes away, whatever terms they have set forth regarding their estate must be honored. The court supervises the process of distributing property and assets after the owner’s death. Some assets can avoid the probate process if the transfer is set up properly; other transfers are examined by the court, and there may be issues relating to their management that need to be negotiated.

Contesting a Will or Trust

Honoring a will or trust is not a problem in most cases. But if a relative suspects that their loved one’s will or trust does not accurately represent their wishes, they may have to go to court to prove it. There are certain legal conditions that can render the will invalid, including if the person who signed the will was mentally unsound or was the victim of coercion or fraud.

Nursing Home Abuse

Elder care can be extremely demanding, and many entrust their loved ones’ long-term care to nursing homes and other residential facilities. When these facilities fail to provide the care they need, the suffering can be unimaginable. Bringing a lawsuit against the facility can help ensure that your loved one’s rights are protected, and their conditions are improved.

Medicaid Denial for Treatment

As people age, their healthcare needs become more complex and more urgent. If Medicaid denies or delays coverage for certain treatments, the results can be deadly. An experienced Brooklyn elder care abuse lawyer can ensure that patients get the full benefits to which they are entitled, and that claims are paid in a timely manner.

Cases like these involving the well-being of elder relatives or their legacy can be very emotional, and often it is difficult to know where to start. Our lawyers will thoroughly examine all documentation related to your case, and develop a sound legal strategy to ensure the best results for you and your family. We provide comprehensive support throughout the trial preparation phase, including preparing witnesses and securing expert testimony when needed.
