When the Unexpected Occurred

Bill wasn’t prepared for his father’s death. To say the heart attack his father suffered was unexpected was an understatement. Dad had always seemed in great health. He was still in his 50’s and an avid runner. Unfortunately, an unrecognized block in his aortic valve took his life and left his loving family wanting.

Bill’s father began his professional career as an entrepreneur in the oil industry. One small rig turned into two, doubled into four, and soon developed into a company that employed hundreds. His passion didn’t stop at work. He was an avid car collector, connoisseur of fine art and dedicated to the preservation of great homes.

At the still-young age of 51, Bill’s dad was worth millions. Unfortunately, little had been done to protect his vast estate and set up his 4 children and numerous grand kids with a healthy inheritance.

A lack of an updated will and testament meant lengthy litigation and little resources for the family to evenly distribute their loving father’s estate as they saw fit.
