My stepfather claims that he helped me to bay and sell real estate properties and that resulted in some profit and that I am continuing benefiting from thous properties with out compensating him for his work. In reality the only thing he did is refered me to his agent freind and i PAYED COMMISSION ON EVERY PROPERTY i BOUGHT AND SELL TO THAT AGENT. In Addition because of the market overturn my properties under water with huge mortgages. As absurd as it sound we are hitting for a trial. what do I do. How do I defend myself?
