October 2015

The firm achieved a settlement for family members who were beneficiaries of an estate and trust left by their deceased aunt. The lawsuit contended that another family member, who had been the executor and trustee, had before the aunt’s death improperly retained accounts and funds that should have gone to the estate and trust, and had otherwise breached his fiduciary duties. The firm was able to achieve a settlement for the family and recover over $400,000.
