Last Will and Testament leaving estate to Bank Teller, found to be invalid and revoked.
MSS represented a woman, whose brother passed away from end stage dementia. Just 4 months before his death and days before being committed to an a locked memory unit for the remainder of his life, left his entire estate to his bank teller. Prior to that, and for the preceding 20 years, his sister had been his sole beneficiary, held medical power of attorney for him and was named as the personal representative of his estate. MSS tried the case to the Judge and the Court found that the deceased lacked testamentary capacity at the time that he signed the new will, our client was reinstated as the personal representative and the proceeds of the estate were properly returned to his family.
