FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Offit Kurman Attorney Don Foster Wins Pendergrass Case in Orphans Court

Philadelphia, PA | October, 21, 2011  Offit Kurman litigator, Don Foster, last week prevailed in a protracted and bitter dispute involving the will of the late singer and entertainer, Theodore “Teddy” Pendergrass. Montgomery County Orphans Court Judge Stanley R. Ott has ruled that a will submitted by Pendergrass’s son was a forgery thus allowing a will naming Foster’s client, Teddy Pendergrass’s widow, Joan Pendergrass, as the sole beneficiary of the estate to be probated. Foster, who chairs Offit Kurman’s Business Litigation group stated, “This has been an emotionally draining case for Joan [Pendergrass]. I realized early on in my involvement that I was on the side of the angels in this one, and Judge Ott’s opinion is a validation of that. Hopefully now the parties can get on with their lives.” If you have any questions please contact Don Foster at: dfoster@offitkurman.com | 267.338.1357 |
