According to well-informed sources, Joan Rivers’ daughter Melissa is going to hire the well-known and powerful New York law firm of Gair, Gair, Conason, Steigman, Maloof, Bloom and Rubinowitz to represent her, as the executor of her mother’s will.
Joan Rivers died on September 4, a week after she underwent a medical procedure at Yorkville Endoscopy. The medical examiner classified her death as a “therapeutic complication,” which means that the death resulted directly from a complication during medical treatment.
It is believed that during the procedure at Yorkville Endoscopy, where her throat was examined, her oxygen supply was cut, she went into cardiac arrest and then a coma, and died a week later.
Rivers’ will has not yet been filed in court, and when it happens, it is believed that Melissa Rivers will be named the executor, which will entitle her to file a lawsuit against the clinic. The Gair law firm confirmed they have been contacted and hired.
