Answered on Jan 13, 2018

a lawyer needs more info?

any prior record?

how much was the return?

do they have an idea how often she has done this and the total amount?

if this is the only time they know about she can argue it was a spur of the moment impulse but if they are aware of other events it shows premeditation/intent and planning to commit the crime.

I'm sure you can find an attorney who will consider taking your case, if you look hard enough and if your case has merit. An attorney can sue the accounting firm, the trustee and the trust attorney. He or she cannot file criminal charges, or even threaten to file criminal charges, and cannot sue the E&O carrier. If a person or company with E&O insurance is sued, they contact their E&O carrier, who may or may not step in and defend.

Answered on Oct 4, 2017

I think there is a good chance that it can be clawed back, if a trustee gets appointed. If it remains a debtor in possession, I would not expect the debtor to take action on this, unless forced to do so.

Unless you signed a consent order then no, someone is trying to steal your property. Any sort of matters that either needs to be a trial/hearing or a formal settlement before a judgement can be issued allowing them to get something called a "property execution" for the Marshall to take your stuff.
