Los Angeles partner Sheldon Eisenberg was mentioned in a Hollywood Reporter article titled, “'All in the Family' Producer's Death Sets Off Trust Battle Over Artwork.”
Following Bud Yorkin’s death last year, his daughter Nicole, who is a successful television writer, and his widow, Cynthia, an actress, have been in a dispute over the late producer’s estate. A petition stated Bud wanted to leave each of his children with a piece from his art collection. Nicole chose a painting by the famous modern artist Hans Hoffman.
Bud left nearly all of his sizeable assets to Cynthia, but Nicole is disputing an amendment to the trust that caused the Hoffman painting to also be given to the widow.
Nicole says there was no reason to believe her father had the intention of not leaving her the Hoffman painting, and she blames Cynthia for what happened.
