I contacted an attorney last May 9 2016 for assistance in a

I contacted an attorney last May 9 2016 for assistance in a rather complex situation involving my husband's family - prominently represented by the son - who had tried to keep me away from my husband by:- “Kidnapping” him. I have been told that the word “kidnapping” does not apply to family members, but that is what he did.- Instructing all people involved to keep me away from my husband.The motive was the inheritance most of which was represented by what else, but the money in the bank accounts.The attorney seemed competent as well as pleasant during our first and only visit. Normally a good judge of characters, I was actually happy to have met her and gave her a $ 1,500.00 retainer.Everything seemed fine at the beginning, She prepared a letter addressed to my husband's rehab center to whose members the son had been communicating the above mentioned instructions. It seemed strange that she would show me the draft, but not the final copy, as mailed out. But I did not think much of that at the time.After that the communications were sporadic, better, I tried to remain in touch on a regular basis, first by telephone. She did not take nor return the call, despite the receptionist‘s assurance that she would call back within the next 20 minutes. Having the telephone failed, I sent largely e-mails. Her replies were sporadic, usually consisting of no more than two lines. And provided little help, if any.On June 7 she sent a letter letting me know that she had spoken to the son. She attached information for which I had not asked, nor wanted to see. After that, there was no communication, none whatsoever from her until August 26. She did not send a copy of the reply from the rehab center. There is one logical conclusion regarding such a conduct, or at least a very good question. What was said during the telephone conversation with th son that prompted the woman who had agreed to represent me, to cut off the already unsatisfactory lines of communication.In the meantime, the situation with the husband's family deteriorated. I sent the attorney messages on a regular basis, basically asking what to do. The messages became increasingly pressing: please get in touch with me. I do need to talk to an attorney; I badly need to talk to an attorney. One of them stated: “If you do not want to represent me, pass the file on to an attorney who is interested. But please do something“. No reply, none whatsoever.On June 29 my husband passed away. She did not reply to the letter notifying her about the sad event.On August 10, I sent her a very angry letter candidly expressing my feelings.She replied with two letters, one dated August 26, the other July 15, but clearly both written at the same time: they were answers to my last letter. In both letters she claimed that she had been in touch with me regularly, she had been the best of lawyers both professionally and personally. The letter of July 15 expressed her condolences in, we could say, an exaggerated manner. She also attached a very detailed account showing regular telephone calls initiated by her, as well as all the work that supposedly she had done for me, each with a separate charge. The account added up to about $ 2,000.00, but, because she was such a nice person, she did not expect me to pay the balance from the original $ 1,500.00 retainer.Having been directly involved and knowing what has actually happened, naturally I find the occurrence outrageous. As a business woman in charge of my own corporation, I have dealt with many attorneys in Canada and the US and never seen anything even remotely resembling this experience. The woman's conduct is unprofessional in a way that one we would not expect from an attorney. It is actually not indicative of an attorney at all. Still, how does one deal with the situation. I have letters, many letters expressing my dissatisfaction. But she has fabricated letters claiming to the contrary.Who would an outsider believe?All advice will be welcome.

My mother passed away. I was the DPA and Medical power of

My mother passed away. I was the DPA and Medical power of attorney. I took care of her and my step father for 7yrs total handling everything by myself. She lived in assisted living. I was just helping and handling everything and my mom was aware of everything. I have 5 brothers and sisters. They were all in the Trust as beneficiaries if any monies were left. There was none. She had a total of 180k amd it lasted to the end. I now have a brother 10 mos later stating he is going to get a lawyer to find out about her money and where it went. Her Trust was in Nevada. I never kept track of anything. No one ever told me too. I Didn't think I had to and I actually was keeping my head above water with a FT job and dealing with everything. My family just kept telling me what a great job I was doing. I am very upset over this issue. My question is: does he have the right to records or bank statements as only being a beneficiary? Can he get a lawyer to investigate? My mom was never legally deemed unable to handle her finances. She was not demented. Aren't people allowed to do whatever they want with their own money?
