Compromising an action for a deceased plaintiff sometimes seems to take longer than did prosecuting the entire case! Factors like having an infant, incompetent, or missing necessary party to the Surrogate’s Court proceeding can lead to month after month after month of delays before a decree can be issued, and you and your clients receive payment. Don’t bang your head against the wall learning a complicated and time consuming practice area on the fly - call or email us today for help.
