A Wealthy Long Lost Brother

A client came to us when she received notice that her brother had passed away in a far away state. This brother had not been heard of for more than twenty years. We helped our client open a probate action and obtain the authority she needed to take care of her long-lost brother's affairs. The effort was worthwhile in more ways then one. Our client and her siblings learned something of the life of their long-lost brother. They also discovered more than a quarter of a million dollars that their long-lost brother had left, by law, to them.
