Attorney Anne Jorgensen and
Attorney Matthew Crowther obtained a settlement valued over $1.1 million for a
contested probate case. As the case progressed, Jorgensen and Crowther aggressively prosecuted
the case and spared no expense in hiring an array of experts and conducting
numerous depositions. They raised crucial issues, including the following:
- Undue influence
- Breach of fiduciary duties
- Lack of capacity
About the Case
In October 2013, the client’s father passed away. Before his death,
the client’s brother unduly influenced their father to disinherit
her completely. In the five years preceding his death, his son caused
substantially all of his property to be transferred to himself and a limited
liability company that he created. After three years, our team was able
to recover a fair share on behalf of our client.
This settlement resulted in our client receiving a significant financial
award, but perhaps more importantly, resolved a long-standing moral conflict
between our client and her brother, allowing them both to move on with
their lives as their parents had intended.
