The attorney for my parentís estate is wishing to withdraw as counsel. My brother allegedly murdered my parents and his alleged children may inherit Ĺ of the estate.
The estate counsel also represents the childrenís grandmother in a large department store suit (7+ million). She is the one that is causing all the problems in the estate case wishing to get her hands on some money and the attorney is sticking by her side, unofficially.
The estate attorney assured me it would be OK to purchase from the estate with two written appraisals and brotherís written approval. Brotherís approval filed in probate case file. I purchased at full retail price. Lots more than things went for at the auction.
The estate attorney made motion and got court approval to sell parentís house to pay bills. Attorney also followed the Kentucky Revised Statute 389A.010 [url]http://www.lrc.ky.gov/KRS/389A00/010.PDF[/url] to obtain court approval for me to purchase last portion of real estate.
When it is time to make the deed the attorney wants the funds deposited to the children, and their mother. I refuse to deposit the funds outside the estate account. He tells me to come and pick up my file and let someone else make the deed. When I go to pick up the file they will only let me have if I sign a waiver stating that I will not hold him or his firm liable what so ever concerning the estate case. After three months of arguing he sends me a letter stating that he is unable to prepare a questionable deed, and has enclosed a copy of a motion to withdraw as counsel for my parentís estate, is citing irreconcilable differences.
Here is what I plan on doing and do not know if it is the correct thing to do or not:
I will show up for the motion so that it will be noted in the court records that Mr. Attorney made the motion to sell estate property to myself, and that he would later only prepare the deed if I deposited the funds from the sale to my brotherís alleged children, their mother and grandmother.
I also plan on making it known that Mr. Attorneyís firm would not release my file unless I signed a waiver releasing them from any liability what so ever, concerning the case.
I also want to ask the judge to ban his firm from representing the afore mentioned parties in suits against myself and the estate due to Mr. Attorney having been counsel for me and the estate.
Will this work?
