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.
