Prompt Settlement for Swindled Elderly Couple


An elderly couple was swindled by a financial planner and his controlled companies. McManis Faulkner moved swiftly to obtain a writ attaching all the defendants’ real property and other assets, leading to a prompt settlement secured by real property for return of all of the clients’ money, plus interest and attorney’s fees, and for entry of judgment against the defendants if they failed to perform. Obtaining an immediate temporary protective order and writ of attachment freezing all of the defendants’ assets saved a large amount of attorney’s fees and the emotional toll a trial would have had on the 90 year-old clients.
