Allegations of Foul Play In The Hirschfeld Family

AbeRachel Hirschfeld is outraged and alleges her brother Elie Hirschfeld, kept her terminally ill father alive for a $300 million dollar deal in which Elie gained control of his fathers real estate assets. Several doctors warned that keeping Abe Hirschfeld alive would only cause him pain and recommended against prolonging the inevitable. Additionally, Rachel is claiming that her brother instructed the doctors to not administer pain relief for his father. Elie was his father’s proxy and was allowed to make his medical decisions. Rachel is bringing suit to try and gain control of her father’s estate. The judge is projected to make a ruling in a few weeks.
