Abraham C. Bloomenstiel is a dedicated probate attorney with experience in probate, estate administration, planning, and bankruptcy.
Settling a loved one's estate often appears to be a daunting process. Mr. Bloomenstiel works with his clients and the heirs to find simple, straightforward, and cost-effective solutions to even the most complicated probate situations.
Examples of some of Mr. Bloomenstiel's recent cases:
- $3,800,000.00 estate involving property of a person who died over 30 years ago. The heirs had been unable to take possession of the property due to a dispute over the identity of the Decedent's heirs. The dispute was resolved, the correct heirs determined, and the property distributed to those heirs.
- An heir fraudulently transferred estate property away while her mother was still living, but suffering from dementia. These transfers were only revealed after the mother died. Mr. Bloomenstiel had the transfers declared invalid, returned the property (5 houses) to the estate, and had the assets distributed to the mother's heirs according to the terms of the mother's will.
- $1,400,000 estate involving an elderly couple who had put their property into a trust and were later found incapacitated due to Alzheimer's. The original trust documents were lost, and it was unclear who was to manage the trust assets. Mr. Bloomenstiel managed to reconstruct the terms of the original trust from various financial documents. The court approved this reconstruction of the trust's terms and confirmed a new trustee to make the funds available for the care of the elderly incapacitated couple.
- $750,000.00 estate in which the original, handwritten will was destroyed by a disinherited heir. Mr. Bloomenstiel successfully admitted a photo copy of the handwritten will to probate and had the deceased's property distributed under the terms of the will, blocking the disgruntled heir's plans to sabotage the estate.
