Whether you're trying to figure out if you need a "power of attorney," or have suddenly found yourself the executor of your uncle's estate, it's hard to keep up with the legal jargon of managing your assets and processing a will. Bring your questions to a live chat with estate planning and probate lawyer Sharon M. Siegel, starting at 10 p.m. Eastern (9 Central, 7 Pacific) on November 15th.

SHARON SIEGEL, a New York lawyer, practices in the fields of estate planning and administration, contested estate and trust proceedings, elder law and guardianships. She also has significant experience in real estate and corporate law. Sharon graduated from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law of Yeshiva University. Sharon says of having handling large and small estates and having planned for and worked with individuals of substantial and modest means, "Representing such a wide spectrum of individuals has trained me to look at situations from almost every angle - legally, tax wise, and practically." Sharon says that because her practice area touches on the most emotional and private facets of someone's life, she considers developing a relationship with her clients central to her practice. Sharon is admitted to practice in New York State.

JSXL5: "A friend passed away August 2011. An estranged cousin has filed suit and lost in both Circuit Court and Appeals Court and still is appealing the last Appeals dismissal (which was done with "no record.") How long may this process go on? The estranged relative had no relationship with deceased, and deceased was of sound mind and the will meets validity tests in Florida. Thank you"
