Katharine Wilson Conroy, Esq., of Counsel to the Firm of Bertine Hugnagel, et al, in Scaarsdale, New York, was appointed as trustee by my late father to handle a trust that he lef to met. Right from the outset, Mrs. Conroy informed this beneficiary that she (Mrs. Conroy) was going to handle the trust as she saw fit. As a result, I was forced to hire legal counsel (at great expense) to get her to comply with the terms of the trust. Essentially, Attorney Conroy failed to discharge her fiduciary duties by failing to meet the terms of the trust as written.
To being with, Attorney Conroy failed to work with this beneficiary to develop a budge which made it impossible for her to comply with the provisions of the Trust. She ignored this beneficiary when I suggested that she help me develop a budget. She sent the beneficiary many deeming e-mails, including telling the beneficiary that she was being "silly" when I complained that she was preventing me from getting my money under the Trust. she caused me unnecessary hardship since under the provisions of SECOND: I, (ii) she had the ability to use trust income and principal to reimburse me for dental, medical and drug expenses. She refused to pay these expenses and continued to ignore my e-mails.
Mrs. Conroy also ignored my earlier e-mails for quarterly payments, despite the fact that my attorney pointed out to her that she should have been making certain payments to me from the trust after certain conditions were met and she had the power to invade principal. When Mrs. Conroy agreed to resign her commission as Trustee, despite the fact that it was not a relatively large and complicated trust, it took Attorney Conroy 3 YEARS to prepare a Petition that the Surrogate's Court would accept. Mrs. Conryo's attitude throughout her entire tenure was one of arrogance and rudeness and her behavior towards the beneficiary was extremely unprofessional. My opinion: Do not hire Katharine Wilson Conroy as your attorney for any legal issues that may arise in your family.
