Hostile and unhelpful attitude, only cared about billing for services.

Carol Adams used delays for 3 years soley to increase her legal fees.She Rarely responded to calls and emails. When she did respond, she would say "everytime you call I get to increase my fees!", then she would end the call without answering any of our questions. I served her with a citation to produce a formal accounting. In August 2007 she appeared in Queens Surrogate Court without the accounting and asked for another delay citing the need to hire an accountant. The estate remains open since 9/05 to present. I had to take Carol Adams to court to remove her authority over my minor children's inheritance. Carol Adams told me she legally could not turn over their money until they reached 21 years of age. I prevailed in court and am now guardian and joint owner of their money with the Surrogate Court. Carol Adams's authority over my children's money was 'discontinued'. I would never want another client to go through what we have been going thru for 3 years. Carol Adams' last emai told me to "get a life" when I requested the specific language in the WIll which stated the beneficiaries forfeited any interest on the estate assets, which she claimed we was not.due to us. The NY Surrogates Court agreed with the beneficiaries, that we will be entitled to all estate interest.
