Mr. Young was hired to work on an Estate. As a beneficiary of said Estate, Mr. Young failed to respond to my queries and attempts to communicate with him via email, after the Personal Representative made repeated poor decisions and refused to answer to the beneficiaries. Further compounding the problem, Mr. Young requested I no longer communicate with the Personal Representative of the Estate despite multiple, legitimate and valid inquires around said administration. Because of his direction, the beneficiaries were forced to hire additional independent counsel, fearing our interests were not being represented.
During the 5.5 years it took to settle the Estate, Mr. Young increased his rates multiple times. Billing was egregious, yet our hands were tied. At settlement, rather that follow our instructions to wire funds, Mr. Young sent the funds by certified mail, yet (shockingly) failed to add a physical address to the envelope. Hence, the funds were lost for one week. We found it outrageous that such sloppiness and lack of professionalism could occur from a supposedly top Law Firm.
I would caution one very carefully before employing Mr. Young for Estate Administration. If there is any potential contention between beneficiaries, one may find themselves in an unfortunate situation that could otherwise be avoided. There were no efforts on Mr. Young's side to bring beneficiaries together.
