Counsel Fees Not Justified

Counsel fees of $34,848, paid from an estate of $102,852, reduced to $18,000, and executor surcharged for excess, when the testimony of counsel was conclusory and failed to justify the fee paid from an estate with no unusual complexities or difficulties.   Susick Estate, 6 Fid.Rep.3d 209, No. 886 DE of 2013 (O.C. Philadelphia Co. 8/18/2015) (Opinion sur appeal by Carrafiello, J.), aff’d, No. 1518 EDA 2015 (Pa.Super. 5/11/16) (non-precedential).
