the biggest challenge in will and trust
00:06
fraud
00:07
cases is that most of the wrongful
00:10
conduct
00:12
occurred behind closed doors
00:16
and you couple that with the fact that
00:18
by the time we are called it’s often the
00:20
case
00:21
the elder whose will or trust it was is
00:23
deceased
00:25
so the best witness i would typically
00:27
have available on a cases
00:29
is deceased i don’t have them so i have
00:31
to go back in time
00:33
and recreate what happened through
00:36
documentation
00:37
and talking to a number of witnesses a
00:40
number of people who were around that
00:41
elder
00:42
in the days leading up to this
00:46
wrongful will this fraudulent will or
00:48
trust
00:49
amendment and so it requires a lot of
00:52
time and a lot of labor
00:54
to go back find who would be in the best
00:57
position who
00:57
are the pertinent witnesses because
00:59
perhaps not surprisingly
01:01
the other side is typically not very
01:03
cooperative in
01:04
keying us in and telling us who the
01:07
important witnesses are
01:08
who has knowledge about what the elder
01:11
really wanted
01:12
at the end of their life
