Case Conclusion Date: 01.01.2012
Practice Area: Probate
Outcome: RESULTS: Our clients got a great result and did not have to pay a large amount of money in attorney fees.
Description: I was hired by a brother and sister after their Mom had died. They learned that their younger brother had stolen from their Mother over the last few years of her life. I explained the basics of probate and how a probate would allow us to transfer their Mother’s home to a buyer. I also explained that we could attempt to collect the stolen funds from their brother. During the probate process I worked with their younger brother to admit to what he had done and attempted to find a way to get back the money he owed to the estate. Over time we were able to get him to agree that he had stolen the money, he agreed to reduce his inheritance by the amount of what he had stolen. We did all of this without the need to go to court.
