Tortious Interference

When a loved one or family member passes away, it is often a time of coming together to support each other during the loss, but sometimes a passing can drive a wedge into a family, especially when an inheritance is at stake.

What is Tortious Interference?

As Gordon Gecko from the movie Wall Street said, “The richest one percent of this country owns half our country’s wealth… One-third of that comes from hard work, two-thirds comes from inheritance,” and when someone tries to take that inheritance from you, you need someone who can help. Tortious interference with an expected inheritance is a straightforward concept: when a person uses fraud, duress, or other wrongful means intended to prevent another person from receiving an inheritance that he or she would otherwise receive, they are committing tortious interference.

“Number One Judgment in the U.S.”

The Boesch Law Group has received recognition for the “Number One Judgment in the United States,” by U.S. Law Weekly for their involvement in the well-publicized tortious interference case involving Anna Nicole Smith and her claims against E. Pierce Marshall, an heir and the youngest son of Anna’s husband, billionaire J. Howard Marshall, II. That federal court case went on appeal to the United States Supreme Court, not once but twice, and much has been written about its importance as a case precedent in probate matters, in bankruptcy matters, and trust and estate matters.
