    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Sounds like you gave them permission to sell the cars, and didn't protect your investment. Presumably the cars did not have "clean" carfax's and as a result brought less than they should have since the purchasers could expect problems with resale.

  • Is a retainer legally binding if the attorney changes firms?

    If I want to continue to work with my attorney, am I required to sign a new contract with new firm even if their terms are less appealing?

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    This should be answered by a Virginia attorney. For some reason its posting in NY. Generally, if you were not legally divorced at the time of your second marriage, the second marriage is not valid. Check with a local matrimonial lawyer to confirm.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    You need a probate attorney or a commercial litigator comfortable with estate cases - not a real estate attorney.

    Big question - Why weren't the assets of the estate distributed a long time ago.
