Attorney sued by man's children

People who live in Florida often are in need of the services of an attorney. The need for legal counsel can range from business affairs to more personal matters like an adoption, a divorce, an estate plan or something else. Regardless of the type of law an attorney practices, the professional is bound by the obligation to act in the best interest of the client at all times. If this does not happen, the client may have the need and the right to pursue action against the attorney.

According to a story that was published by The Palm Beach Post, three adult children have initiated legal action against an attorney that they allege did not act in the best interest of the client but rather in her own best interest. The case dates back several years potentially but the most immediate precipitating events began in 2016. It was then that a man who was almost 90 years old let his wife know that he loved their female attorney who was at least 25 years his junior.

The profession of love led to the demise of the couple's decades-long marriage. The man apparently amended his estate plans so that the attorney would become the executor of his rather substantial estate when he died. The man also, with the assistance of the attorney, engaged in other legal contracts that the family insists hurt his now former wife and their three children.

It is not clear what exact damages the children are seeking but the case is underway at this time.
