Estate Planning Fundamentals

On Aug. 10, Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his New York jail cell where he was being held pending trial on federal charges related to the sex trafficking of minors in New York and Florida. Much of the current media focus has revolved around the suspicious circumstances of his suicide and who might benefit. However, for Epstein’s alleged victims, the more important question is, what can they do now?

At the time of his death, Epstein was worth approximately $577 million, according to a last will and testament he executed two days before his death and filed for probate in the Virgin Islands. For Epstein’s victims, his substantial estate may provide a source of compensation for his egregious and sordid sex crimes.
