Hi Rebekah,

 

Thanks for your enquiry.

 

Could you please confirm on what basis the lawyer is claiming this percentage?

 

Whose Estate have you inherited and in which country?

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi again,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Sorry to ask, but are you sure you have indeed inherited this money and it is all above aboard? (No Solicitor is entitled to charge such a large percentage when dealing with an Estate, unless he is a beneficiary)!

 

Thanks

AL
