Offit Kurman Attorney Don Foster Wins Again; This Time In Fumo Trustee Case

Philadelphia, PA October 21, 2014 – Don Foster and Offit Kurman have achieved victory again. Just after his recent success in the Theodore “Teddy” Pendergrass will contest The Pennsylvania Superior Court on Friday announced that it was affirming a lower court order last year appointing Sylvia DiBona as the trustee of the Vincent J. Fumo Irrevocable Children’s Trust over the objection of the creator of the trust, former state senator, Vincent J. Fumo. Foster, together with another member of the Offit Kurman Trust and Estate Litigation Group, represented Allison Fumo in her effort to secure the appointment of an independent trustee in order to prevent her father and his associates from using the assets of the Trust for themselves. In a divided opinion, the Superior Court agreed with her and affirmed the appointment of DiBona as trustee. Foster, who chairs Offit Kurman’s Business Litigation Group, stated that it was a very gratifying victory and that he was very happy for the client. “These kinds of cases are emotionally taxing. Bill  and I were very motivated to right what we felt was a sad and disappointing wrong inflicted by a father upon his daughter. While we are pleased by the result we are saddened that we had to go to court for help.” He went on to say that although this is a significant milestone in the case, litigation between the parties is not over, the case will return to Orphan’s Court.
