Adam Streisand, http://www.loeb.com/adam_streisand/. is easily one of the best trust and estate litigators in the country. So news that Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine, has hired him seems to show the battle over his estate is heating up. http://www.cnn.com/2009/SHOWBIZ/Music/10/24/jackson.mother.estate/index.html
Among the estates of celebrities the truly fabulous litigator has worked on are Ray Charles, Marlon Brando and Barry White. He authored legislation in conjunction with the Marilyn Monroe estate protecting the right of publicity of dead celebrities, which became law in California. http://www.loeb.com/lawsupportingrightsofcelebrities/ Recently, he represented Britney Spears in her conservatorship proceeding and is representing Larry Birkhead in the Estate of Anna Nicole Smith.
(And yes, he’s a second cousin to Barbra. Talent seems to run in the family.)
