An attorney sent me mail about a relative of mine who was very wealthy that died in an auto accident. He did not have a will made before his death. The money will be forfieted to the bank if not claimed. I'm claiming it but the attorney wants to claim 55% of his assets and 45% to me. I'm going to give him a percentage of the assets to him for finding me. I just feel that the % he wants is too high. Wouldn't it be my choice if i wanted to give him anything at all and not his? Cause i can choose not to claim it then he would not get anything and niether am i. I need an answer asap if anyone could. Much Thanks!
