    Excellent attorney who handled a breach of fiduciary duty case against a financial institution trustee and recovered damages where the bank was making improper investments. He collected our fees from the bank at the conclusion of the case.

It was learned that my mom, who didn't remember anyone, had signed a power of attorney to my sister just 4 months before mom's death. My sister used the POA to add her name to mom's accounts as a joint Read less
