I am a senior who is the victim of elder abuse, elder financial exploitation, unconscionability, undue influence, threats, harassment, blackmail, and several other things. My son and daughter-in-law are the perpetrators. I didn't know I had been ...
Where does your son live now? Massachusetts recognizes financial exploitation of an elder as abuse which carries both civil and criminal consequences where the facts support the claim. There is no guaranty that you can get your money back, but if he has assets to attach that would be the best start.
I would call the Attorney General's office in Boston. I believe they have helpful information they can send to you. I would meet with an attorney as soon as possible.
My brother-in-law was named trustee of my father-in-law's trust. Rather than dispensing the trust, he and his wife raided the estate to the tune of $60,000. He then passed away, leaving my sister-in-law in the home and the second trustee was appoi...
Yes, provided she knowingly participated in the fraud because otherwise you are limited to pursuing his estate only. Odds of collecting are enhanced by attaching assets that are in their name.See question
I won a lead settlement I am aged 23 from NY. My mother pretended she was me and had the lawyers send her the money. Can I sue the lawyers for this?
The answer to your question depends on specific facts. Avvo is a public forum. Do not post specific facts on any public forum. This is something you should speak with an attorney about immediately.
In the meantime, tell your attorney to cancel the check immediately.
I wrote a negative review about a company that never delivered on the services (matchmaking service) and i paid in full (this was under a personal context). The only thing the business in question can dispute is that i am violating the agreements ...
What your are describing gives rise to a civil claim for fraud, defamation, and interference (among others). Keep copies of all emails and other material and speak with an attorney. There is a way to get these types of reviews removed.
Good luckSee question
Before he died I was deeded land business is on and all equipment. I started business in my name immediately. The family is claiming there is assets in his business for probate. They are trying to bring my business currently into estate and make m...
There is not enough information to answer your questions. This is something that you should sit down with an experienced attorney to discuss in detail. Avvo is a public forum so you need to be careful about posting specific information.
I broke my knee July 2016 falling off a non-street legal motorcycle/ATV on a friend's private property in Vermont. This was my first time on a motorcycle. I had to have surgery to repair my knee and about 6 months of physical therapy, but I did no...
I agree and disagree with some of the earlier comments. If you have never been on a motorcycle, and your impairment did not cause the accident, it may have been negligence to allow you to operate the machine to begin with. While it is true this could be upsetting to your friend, s/he should have never allowed you to get on something you were not ready to handle to begin with.See question
They said I diverted funds to another account, I stopped payment on the debits. I spoke with them first and told them the situation, the bank account would go into negative balance and my bank would charge me fees, could they reduce the payment....
What they are doing is illegal and a violation of Massachusetts law. It may not eliminate the need to repay their loan, but there may be better options for you. I think you should speak with an attorney before you try to deal with them again.
My mom's will was not given to me and my siblings until months after her death. My brother was her executive. I had filed a report with elder services when my mom was sick that my brother was mishandling her money (unexplained withdrawals, no rece...
Speak with a probate litigator before you do anything. Interference with expectancy is actionable and you can also challenge the accounting he files with the court, provided you do so in a timely manner. If he has any assets in his name you should consider seeking an attachment of those assets (real estate, bank accounts) if you have a valid claim.
Also, be mindful that this is a public forum. The post you made includes very specific information. Save the specific info for the probate litigator you meet with.
Good luck.See question
I am a beneficiary of a substantial trust. The trust was written badly by a lawyer who denies writing it and at the time was not one of my parents' lawyers. They have died. My two brothers , trustees and beneficiaries, have looted the trust. This...
Massachusetts recognizes a claim for interference with expectancy. The problem, however, is that this is a public forum and you do not want to discuss details of your case in a public forum. There are time limitations and other issues that are involved. If I were you I would gather all records that you have and contact an attorney immediately.
My elderly father had dementia and delirium (clearly shown by hospital records and doctors letters stating he had not been coherent enough to sign any documents in past 3 years) He sadly passed away 2months ago and I found out that he signed a "tr...
Massachusetts recognizes a claim for interference with expectancy and this sounds like a textbook case. If the facts are as you represent you need to speak with a lawyer immediately.
