“ARTICLE OF EDWARD J. BLAKE, JR., BELLEVILLE, ST. CLAIR COUNTY, ILLINOIS WILL CONTEST, TRUST DISPUTE, ESTATE SETTLEMENT ATTORNEYS”. WE WERE RETAINED BY SISTERS FROM NEW YORK AND SOUTH CAROLINA THAT HAD BEEN PART OF A FAMILY ENGAGED IN FARMING IN THE JERSEYVILLE, JERSEY COUNTY, ILLINOIS AREA. THEY ALSO HAD A BROTHER WHO WAS ACTIVELY FARMING THE FAMILY FARM. OUR CLIENTS’ FATHER PREDECEASED THEIR MOTHER. OUR CLIENTS THOUGHT THAT WHEN THEIR MOTHER DIED THAT OUR CLIENTS WOULD SHARE EQUALLY, ONE-THIRD (1/3) TO EACH OF OUR CLIENTS AND ONE-THIRD (1/3) TO THEIR BROTHER IN REGARD TO THE FAMILY FARM. IT WAS NOT UNTIL THEIR MOTHER PASSED AWAY THAT OUR CLIENTS DISCOVERED WHAT HAD OCCURRED BEFORE THEIR MOTHER PASSED AWAY. PRIOR TO THE DEATH OF THEIR MOTHER, THEIR BROTHER WAS INVOLVED IN ACTIVITY THAT RESULTED IN THE FAMILY FARM, WORTH MORE THAN $1,000,000.00, BEING TRANSFERRED TO THEIR BROTHER, WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE OF OUR CLIENTS, BEFORE THEIR MOTHER PASSED AWAY.
