Hi again.

So the attorney claims that no money was paid out, but your brother doesn't believe him? Is that the situation?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
that is the reason. Is there a way to check that it was paid out?
Expert:  TJ, Esq. replied 11 months ago.

I don't know of a way to check if the money was paid out, other than contacting his attorney. But if his attorney is lying or not being diligent in his representation of your brother, then your brother can file a bar complaint against him.
