Quarles & Brady represent a dear friend of mine in an estate dispute with her sister. Her sister had had their mother committed to mental institution against her will and was held with no contact with the outside world. After my friend managed to free her mother, her mother disinherited the greedy sister. After the mom died, the sister sued. Quarles represented my friend and they assured her justice would be done. However, despite having both the law and the facts on their side, Quarles negotiated away more than half the estate then demanded the remainder for themselves as payment. Quarles ran up hundreds of thousands of dollars in bills for questionable services that were never used. Her lawyer, John Rothsetein, may never have even bothered to read the will, being unaware of key provisions in it including an educational fund for my friend’s adult daughter which they negotiated away through lack of preparation. My friend is currently determining the best way to fight them, but it’s an uneven playing field – they are lawyers and she is not. Any media attention would be welcome.
