Complaint / review text:
Christopher B. Estes, attorney at law is representing his mother, my step-sister, in a law suit against my mother, Mr. Estes' own grandmother!
Christopher B. Estes' mother, Charlotte A. Estes, stole our elderly mother's entire life savings from her bank and refuses to return it. Charlotte Estes used her former Power of Attorney to remove our mother's life savings. Not only did Charlotte steal from our mother, she allowed our mother to be neglected and abused by three other family members. Our elderly mother suffers from dementia and Charlotte Estes took advantage of our mother in every way possible. Christopher B. Estes continues to represent Charlotte Estes to allow her to hold onto my mother's life savings. My attorney sent a letter to Mr. Estes and ordered him and Charlotte Estes to return my mother's money promptly. Yesterday, my attorney received a rebuttal from attorney Estes. The letter basically said that Charlotte Estes has no intentions of returning my mother's life savings even though she was ordered to do so.
My elderly mother lives on a small pension and she depends on the kindness of her neighbors and what is left of her family to survive. My mother lives in an old house that was built in 1959 and is in need of repair. The money my mother had in her checking account before Charlotte Estes removed it was all the money my mother had in the world. My mother now is completely broke and isn't able to have any repairs done to her house.
Christopher Estes has no right to defend his mother against his own grandmother and allow her to keep my mother's money.
I have reported Christopher to the American Bar Association, the Alabama Bar Association and to his employers. Christopher Estes is my own nephew and my mother has always been good to him. My mother has always welcomed him and his wife into her home and this is how my nephew treats my mother. His behavior is disgusting and sickening.
In my opinion, Christopher B. Estes should lose his license to practice law and he should be fired from the law firm where he is employed.
The law firm of Alford, Clausen & McDonald, LLC should order Christopher to force his 'client', my step-sister, to return the money she stole from her own mother. The law firm should fire Christopher for his immoral behavior.
People in Mobile, Alabama, beware of this attorney.
