well we had a situation where our client
00:08
was the longtime boyfriend of an elderly
00:10
woman and he’d been with her for about
00:13
20 years and she had left no children
00:15
and she had no other natural heirs but
00:18
in some early versions of her trust she
00:20
had left her entire estate to some
00:23
charitable entities but in the year or
00:26
so before she died she did a written
00:27
will in which she said that she wanted
00:30
to amend her trust and give everything
00:31
to her longtime boyfriend who taken care
00:34
of her for for much of this time and so
00:37
there was a will contest that was
00:38
brought by the former beneficiaries and
00:41
we aggressively defended the client and
00:44
we were able to keep for him virtually
00:47
the entire estate we paid about 10% to
00:50
the contesting prior beneficiaries but
00:53
it was a good result for him and allowed
00:55
him to keep the majority of the deceased
00:58
person’s estate
