Law.com reports that a well-known Allentown, Pennsylvania lawyer was indicted by a federal grand jury last week for fabricating wills to add himself as a beneficiary after his lawyer brother and sister-in-law were killed in a plane crash.
According to the indictment, the lawyer and his son conspired with a doctor to present fake wills in Orphans' Court.
The lawyer's lawyer says that none of the three are guilty and that the lawyer/defendant was targeted because he is a prominent lawyer who has successfully sued police departments.
I hope so.
