TROY — Estate planning and probate litigation attorneys Andy and Danielle Mayoras, principal shareholders at Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras & Mayoras PC in Troy, are shining the legal spotlight on high profile estate battles among the rich and famous on the REELZChannel’s new national television series, Celebrity Legacies.
The locally-based husband and wife legal duo were pegged by the program’s producers to provide expert commentary about dozens of contentious celebrity court cases during each of the 26 hour-long episodes on the fame-focused cable entertainment network. Celebrity Legacies debuted nationwide on REELZ earlier this month.
The legacy attorneys will continue to offer their extensive expertise and legal analysis about the estate planning errors, legal wrangling and probate drama of such famous celebrities and pop culture icons as Whitney Houston, John Lennon, Anna Nicole Smith, John F. Kennedy Jr., Farrah Fawcett, Jim Morrison, Heath Ledger, Elvis Presley, Aaron Spelling, Elizabeth Taylor, Bob Marley, Ray Charles, and many others on upcoming shows.
“With their vast knowledge and experience in estate planning and probate litigation, Danielle and Andy are adept at explaining the intricacies of famous estate battles in insightful, informative ways for viewers,” says Jennifer McAuley, content supervisor for CMJ Productions II Inc., the production company producing Celebrity Legacies for the REELZChannel.
At Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras & Mayoras, Danielle Mayoras counsels clients on estate planning, including wills, trusts and powers of attorney. Andy Mayoras’ area of concentration at the firm is probate litigation, including trust and estate disputes ranging from families of modest wealth to heirs of multimillion dollar estates and trusts in the state. The couple is frequently contacted by families of pop icons, legendary Hollywood actors and famous musicians based on their national notoriety and reputation.
“The truth is, the estate planning and inheritance issues celebrities deal with are the same as those faced by our clients here in Michigan,” says Danielle Mayoras. “Even though the dollars at stake may be different, famous families have the same concerns as those we work with every day.”
The couple are also co-authors of the best-selling book, Trial & Heirs: Famous Fortune Fights!, and cohosts of the national television special Trial & Heirs: Protect Your Family Fortune! The Mayoras’ have appeared on Access Hollywood, Rachael Ray Show, The Insider, The Hallmark Channel and many other national television programs.
