You can sue the men. If they have non-exempt assets, you may even be able to collect any judgment.
Given the relatively small amount of money involved, you can sue them in justice of the peace court and do not need an attorney who so.

Judge stated I had money in my 401k and for me to pay for mediation from that account. The rules for loans from 401k don’t allow me to use the funds. What legal repercussions are there for not being able to afford mediation?
answered on Dec 6, 2022
In almost all situations, an employee can make an early withdrawal from their 401k plan to pay a mediation fee in a pending divorce case. It happens all the time.
Good luck trying to prove your 401k plan will not allow you to make an early withdrawal under such circumstances.

It sounds like the attorney stopped communicating with you because he has a conflict of interest. If the attorney previously performed legal services for your half-brother related to the trust, he quite likely does have such a conflict and should not communicate with you.
You should hire... Read more »

The answer to your question will be heavily dependent upon the language in the order. Some orders will spell out what happens if a drug test is refused (it’s often treated as a positive), and will clarify possession terms based upon testing. I would encourage you to read the order carefully and... Read more »

The answer depends on who owned the property at the time of your parents' deaths. If you and your sister owned the property, then your parents' death doesn't give anyone else rights to the property. If your parents still owned the property, then all of their heirs (either under a... Read more »

Their actions, as you describe them are odious. Yes, they are bound by the written agreement which, as you say (I believe) provides for arbitration. In addition, there may be legal impropriety in their obtaining knowledge of the HHS report.

Was the agent negligent? Sounds like it. But at this point it's not clear what your damages are. If they fix the problem, you won't have any damages. No damages means no claim against the agent.
