Yes, here it is.
My father in law passed away in 2003, at which time my brother in law and his tweeker girlfriend both quit their jobs, lived off my mother in law until she passed away in 2009, he went through over 500,000 in 5 years. this includes car payment, insurance for 3 vehicles, one of which was on blocks, groceries, utilities and cash upwards to 6000 a month. We sued him for financial elder abuse. We actually had a good case, unfortunately our lawyer, who assured us ( after payments totaling 250,000 some of which we had to borrow from my husband's pension) this was a slam dunk case no way we would lose. I actually did most of the research,told her to get my brother in law's copies of checking account, which she did, only after 1 1/2 years at which time the bank went out of business and we tried to go through the FDIC to no avail. I was the one to get the copies of the discover card statements that showed my brother in law was in Vegas, buying prostitutes, cash advances, 22 visits to walmart in one day with charges under 75.00 a pop, sorry rambling, anyway she lost our case. We are appealing, my brother in law's attorney wants to settle, because my brother in law is a dead beat. I think they know they will lose the appeal. The reason our attorney is settling is because the appeal is on her dime, at which time, Bradley (my husband) was removed as co-trustee, which she failed to mention to us, she told us to close the trust account, which my husband was sole trustee of and to give the money to opposing counsel to handle as a sign of good faith. All the while she knew that Brad was removed as co-trustee. Zachary, sorry there are so many layers, anyways the jest of the matter is now they say i have to sign the settlement, in order to end this thing, I feel that i am being bullied into it, not by opposing counsel but by my husband's attorney. To say i do not trust her is an understatement. I do not know who has the least scruples her or opposing. Here is another thing. My mother in law evicted us from the home that was left to my husband in the trust, because Bradley called his brother out on smoking meth. I am sorry it just goes on and on and on. maybe this will give you an understanding of why i am unsettled
