Posted by Ruth | August 31, 2012
Walt's advice and planning for my mother's complicated estate was invaluable.
When my great aunt died, she had left a will bequeathing everything to my mother. Unfortunately, a distant cousin had already accessed all her assets so it appeared my mother would get very little. Walt acted quickly and, without litigation, succeeded in regaining my mother's inheritance within a week. When the time came to plan for my mother's estate, Walt worked with us to secure her mineral assets so that they would not be broken up, which would have greatly reduced their value and utility. Now that she has passed, my family has seen the great results of a good estate plan by an excellent lawyer. Thank you Walt.
