I have no experience with estate attorney's, however, in my world if I hire someone, I can fire them. A friend of mine who was in the hospital years and years ago, fired his doctor based on the fact that he had been in the hospital and of course they asked him who his doctor was. Days went by before his doctor even showed up to check on him, with an apology stating that he was very busy with other patients and had to prioritize them all including him. I happened to be in the room when my friend told the doctor that he was fired. The look on his face and the statement "you cannot fire me" lit a fuse to say the least. The head nurse asked the doctor to leave and assured my friend that the hospital would assign a different doctor for him...
I do not know the ins and outs of estate attorneys and I would think that getting a 2nd opinion from a different attorney would be the same as getting a 2nd opinion from a doctor.
Since many of you have experience with this. my estate lawyer is giving me vague billing descriptions and bill for things like: - "the guy you referred me to tried to steal my financial team's account" or "do not do anything I will handle." Can I fire him? I still have to do an inventory according to him even tho my husband had a will
Thank u Deborah...so true.
this hit home
Never mind,,I see where u r from.
Real estate, huh? LOL you aren’t in Northern California by chance..r u?
My apologies for putting this on this site...please don,t kick me off, moderators.
HI Mary Jane. The way I see it, there is no privacy really, so it doesn't bother me. I never post anything that I would care if anyone saw. Plus, my business, which is Real Estate, is based online with regards to all of my websites, etc...so I'm fully immersed in it and always have been. I do appreciate your concerns though. It's not paranoid if it's true!
Thanks Sheri. I will check out your site, but I don,t do Facebook very much. I think FB is the governments dream...and everything anyone posts there is recorded somewhere to bused if need be, against the people. Can u say paranoid? Lol...but I believe it is true. There is no such thing as privacy. I am sure every thing we write here is noted somewhere.
NOW..I would like to recommend an old TV program..which basically saved my life after BOb died. It is The Golden Girls. I have watched each of the 180 episodes for almost three years..and even tho I can recite the lines, it is still comforting, intelligent, extremely funny. And deals with real subjects in a way comedic things now, don,t. We are too busy being afraid of offending to deal with really tough subjects unless it is a police or military show..which I do not watch regularly.
Ironically I mentioned this to one of my closest friends a few weeks ago, and she revealed that show got her through a bought of breast cancer 7 years ago. And if u r a guy, watch it anyway. It could just as easily b about 4 men.. the humor transcends gender
ok, I wrote down your blog address..so I will check it out. Thanks!.
Hi Mary Jane, Yes, that happens to me too with the nicknames. They are ingrained into our brains. Like parents calling their kids by the wrong names. It's just habit. On the subject of funny TV shoes, there is a newer one called American Housewife that is really good. On another subject, I've started a website and blog, it's just in the beginning stages, but it's all about what we talk about her. Grief, the process, and what happens at the time, and what happens moving forward. This site was the most helpful to me and I want to share that with others to help. Take a look when you have time. It's called stronglikebull.love. I have a Facebook page as well.
Hahahahaha...thank you, Sara, for my first laugh of this day..when I read the last line of your post.
BTW, since I am on the subject of laughter, I watch a lot of TV..but it has to be FUNNY TV, nothing violent. last night I watched a new sitcom, which had me on the floor. Single Parents. It was wonderful..up there with The Good Place, and the Bif Bang Theory. I highly suggest it for a great show.
Have a good day everyone.
