Daughter Settles Dispute Favorably


On the day of trial, our client successfully resolved an estate matter whereby she received 60% of the available funds of the estate. Interestingly, the case involved an admission by both brother and sister that their father had upwards of $200,000 in cash at the time of death (a brown paper bag with a handwritten note was secured as the foremost piece of evidence). However, both sides essentially alleged that the other had taken the cash. Questions of law such as who had the burden of proving their case weighed heavily and a successful negotiation resulted.
