Ms. CR

Ms. CR had previously received a divorce and was struggling to make ends meet with modest child support being paid by her former husband. After the divorce, Ms.R’s ex-husband left his previous employment and began his own company. Eventually this company became very successful, hiring approximately fifteen (15) employees.

Mr. HA

Mr. HA was an elderly widower without children. He suffered from early signs of dementia. When he became ill, two of his nieces separately and independent of each other were able to convince him to execute two different wills. Each of these wills gave his entire Estate to a different niece. At the time of his death, he had been under the care of one of these nieces who had been appointed his guardian by the Probate Court. This guardian would subsequently steal all of his assets and hide them in an off-shore account where they would eventually be lost. After his death, the two wills would both be thrown out by the court, leaving an intestate estate (no Will) which would then lead our client (a third, previously uninvolved niece) to a share of the estate. This office representing the third niece, was able to prosecute the insurer who had issued a Surety Bond for the guardian. The results were our obtaining for our client those funds which had been stolen from the estate and to which she was entitled. This amounted to over four hundred thousand ($400,000.00) dollars. Together with an order for the insurer to pay our fees and costs.

Mr. DB

Mr. DB was the son and co-executor of his father’s estate. Together with his sister, they were charged with administering that Estate for the benefit of all the siblings. This duty included gathering the father’s assets and after paying all final bills, dividing the balance amongst their siblings. Mr. AB’s sister was in possession of bank accounts which she held jointly with deceased father during his lifetime and she refused to include this amount in the Estate. This law office, on behalf of Mr. B brought an action against the sister to recover the funds she had taken. Enlisting the cooperation of the deceased father’s previous lawyer, this office was able to prove that the funds were held in joint name for the convenience of the father while he was alive and that it was never the father’s intention to give those accounts to his daughter and exclude his other children. After trial in the Probate and Family Court, the Judge ordered the bank accounts and other items turned over to the Estate, removed the daughter as co-executor, and ordered the daughter to pay this firm’s attorney’s fees and costs.
