Susan Link, head of Maslon's Estate Planning Group, was interviewed for a New York Daily News article titled, "Man whose mother 'crossed paths' with Prince claims to be singer's son, seeks DNA test." The article reports on a recent claim by an unidentified Midwestern man who "bears a resemblance to Prince and claims his mother met the superstar on multiple occasions in the early 1980s around the time he was conceived."
"If paternity can be determined by clear and convincing evidence through DNA, the child would be recognized as Prince's sole heir and receive the assets through intestate succession," Susan stated, adding, "if a valid petition is filed, the judge could say a genetic test is needed to move ahead with the overall settlement of the estate."
Susan Link practices in the areas of estate planning, probate, and trust administration. She works closely with families to plan the disposition of their assets, both during lifetime and at death, and to accomplish the optimal estate and gift tax planning for clients through wills, trusts, and other instruments. Additionally, Susan serves as the program director of Minnesota Wills for Heroes. The Wills for Heroes program, sponsored by the Minnesota State Bar Association, is designed to provide free legal services for the preparation of basic estate planning documents for Minnesota first responders. She is also a member of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel and has taught as an adjunct professor at the University of St. Thomas School of Law.
