Full ownership of property received

, ,

Andrew represented the widow of a man who died leaving her all his property, which was a very significant amount of land.  The Deceased’s siblings sued, arguing that in fact the man had not owned the property, but rather had held in trust for them for decades, following the death of their own parents.  They argued that they had transferred their rights in the property to the deceased many years previously, and that a trust resulted from that transfer.  At trial, we argued that if there was any transfer at all, it was not one that could be impressed with a trust.  We succeeded at trial, and the widow received full ownership of the property at issue.
