Representative Work: Smoothing the Troubled Estate

A client and her sister were appointed as co-personal representatives of their father's estate.  Because our client lives in California, the sister was responsible for administering the assets located in the Pacific Northwest.
When the sister failed to fulfill her duties, we intervened and pursued our client's interests in court.  We obtained orders that appointed a new personal representative, awarded our client her requested personal representative's fee, and required the sister to pay a substantial portion of our client's attorney fees.  We also obtained orders that were necessary to move the estate toward final distribution and closing.
