Fraudulent Transfer Attorney in New York
Cases of Undue Influence and Estate Litigation
A gift is fraudulent when an individual transfers assets as a result of
undue influence or when he/she was in a weakened physical or mental condition.
These transfers can involve assets such as
real estate and bank accounts and are often made by the decedent during the last months,
weeks or days or his/her life. Novick & Associates has assisted executors
and administrators of estates in bringing discovery proceedings aimed
at recovering the assets that were fraudulently transferred.
