My broker brother-in-law and sister managed my father's stock. I know he made illegal trades and used my fathers account to buy sell trade to cover his purchases. He was fired from three companies for his practices.
An estimated million dollars disappeared before my father's passing. I got no inheritance. I cannot get a copy of his will, if one was made. My sister and her husband took all stock, Disney, Microsoft, John Hancock etc. She took all cash including bank accounts, bonds, T-Bills and life insurance payments including his military benefits which I raised to 70K many years ago.
They sold my father's million dollar home to my youngest brother for 125 thousand, and effectively put me in a homeless shelter. As a disabled navy veteran myself, I receive a hudvash voucher (military section 8 type help) to help pay rent and I get SSI. Other items include that she refused to pay taxes for my father's 52 acre farm upstate NY and lost it to the state, bought for 98 thousand.
A family member said my father gave power of attorney, but signed under medication hours before surgery, which may not be a legal document. I cannot afford a lawyer unless I recover some of the money. My sister and husband live in a 4 million dollar house in Brewster NY, and military pays my apartment in the Bronx.
Do I need advice or legal aid or a pro-bono lawyer?
