Dear Members of the Brooklyn Bar Association,
In an effort to address estate issues exacerbated by COVID-19, the BBA Trusts & Estates Section and Surrogate’s Court Committee will be partnering with the Brooklyn Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP) in providing pro bono legal assistance to Brooklyn’s most vulnerable residents in the following areas:
- Applications for voluntary letters of administration (estates under $50,000.00)
- SCPA 1310 affidavits regarding payment of certain debts without administration (i.e. collection of up to $30,000 without administration)
The volunteer opportunities will not require an extensive time commitment and training will be provided.
If you are interested in volunteering for the small estate program, please complete this online FORM.
And thank you. Your help goes a long way.
Daniel Antonelli, Esq.
Vice Chair, Trusts and Estates Committee
Sidney Cherubin, Esq.
