My 85 year old estranged father passed away two years ago leaving everything to my stepmother in a living trust, which excluded us three girls from his first marriage. She filed a wrongful death suit (asbestos). Her attorney sent us a letter to si...
If you retain a lawyer for the hearing you certainly have a chance. . Generally, there is a presumption of a loss between a parent and a child, even if estranged. The question is "how much of a loss." A trial judge will be very hesitant to zero out a represented child, because there is a risk of loss on appeal. The Trust provisions are a secondary concern, if any.
It's time to get off the internet and hire a lawyer asap to get that hearing continued so he/she can fully prepare you and your sister for a distribution hearing.

My condolences on your loss. I had read the article in the paper and thought of how tragic that was. Your civil lawsuit options may be many, not the least of which is the drunk driver, the place that served him alcohol, and your own insurance company.

Everything the other lawyers have answered to your question is true. But take some comfort that overall, only a relatively small number of appeals are successful. In particular, family law appeals tends to fail. But also, they're not cheap; if your husband can't keep a job, I wonder how he's managing to pay his lawyer for a trial and now an appeal.
If you don't want your trial lawyer handling your appeal, make sure you move to hire an appeal attorney right away. Do not wait and appeals are full of important deadlines.

Truck collisions are not car collisions and should never be handled as such. You explained the "what" of your crash and how it was the fault of the truck driver. Truck collision lawyers get to the "Why" your accident really happened and that's where the true, and high value of your case is at. Don't let a car accident lawyer handle your case. Call me and I will set you up with a world class truck collision lawyer in your area. 888-346-8841See question
I slid into a parked van on an icy day, the other person agreed to settle outside of insurance (which I didn't have at the time but do now) so it is considered a "civil matter" later that day he called the police to do a report and they told him s...
Yes, they can. But in our jurisdiction if you go out and acquire insurance and you have a lawyer, the state's attorney will normally dismiss that charge. I don't really know what happens if you don't have a lawyer. BUT either way, having the charges dismissed doesn't get you out of being liable for damages you may have caused and sometimes the state's attorney will try to force restitution you.See question

I have suffered humiliation, mental anguish not only in work place but also in the public, can you help me?
Your chances of getting a pro bono attorney for that type of case are extremely slim. But the good news is that if you can find a personal injury attorney who thinks you have a good case, they will take it on a contingency fee basis, meaning when and if you get money that's where your attorney fees will get paid out of. Expect your attorney fees to be 33%, perhaps 40% of whatever money you get.See question

No, he needs at worst to get court supervision and if need be hire a lawyer to help him on this to both protect his driver's license record and keep your auto insurance premiums down.See question
