Andrew W. Mayoras

About me

I am co-author of Trial & Heirs:  Famous Fortune Fights!, a contributor to Forbes, and frequent media commentator on celebrity and other trust and estate matters, including serving as a recurring expert on the Celebrity Legacies television show on the Reelz Channel. 


I concentrate my legal practice in probate litigation, which includes any disputed matter affecting seniors, their family members, and related individuals and companies, such as will and trust contests, guardianship and conservatorship disputes, asset challenges, beneficiary rights and trustee/executor duties.
