The local branch manager had a sensitive situation with the estate of a Financial Advisor who had sadly passed away earlier that year. His assets were held up in court in a battle between his family members and the beneficiaries. It was a sensitive issue for the firm to follow through with the court order of who received what from the eventual settlement. The manager was in need of someone independent, dependable and trustworthy to execute the court order. She approached me as her choice and I gladly offered my time and services to work on the case. On my time, I biased between the two parties, the court representative and attorneys to carry out the court order and division of assets, following the required and strict procedure delineated by the courts. I saw the need to help out the branch management, assist the beneficiaries and family members during their time of loss to make things as seamless as possible, while also ensuring and adhering to an impartial and fair process.
