Description:Client and her siblings inherited property from her grandfather in Alachua County. Counsel learned that the grandfather's stepsons had also inherited under the principle of "virtual adoption." Action began in 2008 with a partition action when clients were unable to negotiate a resolution with co-owners. A volume of title issues complicated the sale and, ultimately, were cleared after 18 months of diligent effort.
