If you got a letter from us, means we have already reviewed the court file where you are entitled to a lost inheritance or unclaimed property.
We found you using open-source data. This can be court records, land records, utility information, etc.
Oftentimes, people are in disbelief when they receive the first letter from us. They think, "No, this can't be real." Or they think, "How can this be? How can I just have a big chunk of money owed to me." So, it takes most of our clients a little while to come to grips with the situation. Almost all of our clients contact us after they receive a second or third letter.
Yes. We are licensed attorneys regulated by the Illinois Supreme Court. We never ask you for any money, personal information or financial information.
We disclose the exact source of the lost inheritance after our firm has been retained.
That depends on the facts of your case. We have to prove to the judge that you are entitled to the inheritance money. That may require a birth certificate, or a relative’s death certificate, etc. If the judge requests a document we don’t have, we will contact you and develop a plan together to get the information the judge requests.
Absolutely not. In the unlikely event we cannot recover any money for you, then we are not owed any money. Any money that we advance for your case does not need to be repaid.
This process usually takes three to six months after we receive the client’s Representation form. Depending on the facts of your case, it may take a little longer.
