An ugly dispute has erupted among the five children of the late Philadelphia trial attorney James E. Beasley Sr., pitting the two daughters from his first marriage against the son and two daughters from his second marriage in a battle over the handling of his $55 million estate. A petition seeks to remove Pamela and James Beasley Jr. as co-executors. The court battle promises to be explosive because the elder sisters are represented by a disgruntled former Beasley Firm attorney who is suing the firm.
