“Every Time I Called, I Got Right Through To Him No Problem.”
After Norm Reeves father passed away, he knew it was his grandmother’s intention for him to share her estate with his uncle (her only surviving child) in his father’s absence.
However, after his grandmother’s death, his uncle would only provide bits and pieces of information about the estate. Suspicious that his uncle was taking advantage of him, Norm decided to hire an attorney.
Initially, Norm was reluctant and cautious before entering into a relationship with The Grossman Law Firm, having had a bad experience in the past with attorneys. However, after repeated telephone calls Norm felt comfortable moving forward. “He (Scott) really made me feel at ease as far as the whole legal process,” states Norm. “He basically gave me the rundown on what my uncle was doing, and it was almost exact! He didn’t even know the guy and he already knew what was going on.”
Through Scott’s diligence and perseverance, it was discovered that Norm’s grandmother suffered from dementia and that a new trust was created and signed while under his Uncle’s care. The case was further complicated after an existing trust was discovered, exposing the fact that most of Norm’s grandmother’s assets were hidden, including a piece of Texas farmland and a 5-Plex, leading to two separate trust litigation cases and one probate case.
Eventually the case went to mediation. Evidence of Norm’s grandmother’s medical condition was provided to the court after the defense made an initial settlement offer that was very low. Consequently, the final settlement resulted in Norm receiving nearly 10 times the amount than was initially offered.
“His persistence lead to us coming to an agreement,” said Norm. “An agreement which could not have been a result without his counsel. I don’t think I could have done it with any other lawyer. It was a very difficult case, but he was always in control.”
During the nearly two-year long ordeal, Norm was impressed with how Scott handled his case, especially in light of the fact that Norm lived in Texas while the case was being litigated in California. “Scott kept me informed at all times and whatever he told me he followed through with. There were no surprises. He was very forthcoming with his thoughts, but he always left it up to me to make the ultimate decision on what I wanted to do. We built this mutual trust, which at first I did not have because of my leeriness with what happened in the past,” shared Norm.
“Every time I called, I got right through to him no problem. He always knew what was going on in the case and where we were at, up to the same day. It was really kind of amazing, actually. I felt like I was his only client. Scott Grossman was very professional at all times. I would work with him again and anyone he would recommend for that matter.
“I know it’s what my grandparents would have wanted. That’s the most important aspect of it. They wanted me to have something. And by the grace of God, I got Scott Grossman as my attorney and it worked out perfectly for me in this matter. I would highly recommend him to anyone else going through the same circumstances. He’s an honest attorney. That goes a long way with people.”
