New Jersey Law Journal: NJ Attorney’s Widow, Former Firm at Odds over Life Policy

In the October 28, 2015 edition of the New Jersey Law Journal, NJ Attorney’s Widow, Former Firm at Odds over Life Policy, reporter David Gialanella writes about the ongoing dispute between now-deceased New Jersey lawyer Robert Conroy and the firm that allegedly de-equitized him during a long illness, Kern Augustine Conroy & Schoppmann, involving a life insurance carrier unsure of whom should be paid $250,000 in benefits. Conroy, a noted healthcare lawyer, passed away on July 25th at the age of 62. John Hanamirian represented Robert Conroy and now represents his wife, Mary Conroy, and the estate.

"Any policies on Bob's life owned by the firm form the basis for a death buyout under the shareholders agreement and we are in the process of negotiating a global resolution of all issues that would include resolution of any dispute over that value,” Hanamirian told the Law Journal. "Our resolution would negate the necessity for any adjudication of the most recent filing in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.”
