Attorney Pelczarski is available to represent trustees, executors, and beneficiaries in matters involving undue influence, duress, and disputes as to how trusts and estates have been handled and how their assets have been distributed.  She has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America for her work in this area, and her successfull representation of clients in these matters has resulted in some of the most widely reported judicial opinions on this topic.
