Our family business has … turned to David Worhatch many times for an assortment of business and personal matters. He has always been very responsive. He is honorable, fair, brilliant … and quite possibly the best attorney on the planet!
Our business needed legal counsel … due to a lawsuit that was filed against us by a bank stemming from an act of embezzlement committed by an unscrupulous ex-employee. Initially, we hired an attorney we had used in the past, but he did not keep us informed and we began to worry about the quality of our representation. Our accountant highly recommended Mr. Worhatch as he had hired David for problems in his own firm that were caused by an unscrupulous partner. Our accountant explained that Mr. Worhatch had filed and won a lawsuit against that partner for losses sustained by the partnership.
Taking our accountant’s advice was the best thing that we could’ve done. After apprising him of our situation, Mr. Worhatch … came up with a strategy to stop the bank from winning its lawsuit against us. We were on the brink of losing the case due to the other attorney’s incompetence ... lesson learned … always hire the right person for the job.
The bank’s case was masterfully settled thanks to Mr. Worhatch’s negotiation expertise and comprehensive understanding of the law. Our business was saved and we wound up not having to pay a red cent to the bank. Mr. Worhatch has continued to be our company’s “go-to” attorney ever since.
[Some years later], individual members of our family joined in hiring Mr. Worhatch on an issue concerning an irrevocable trust. The grantor of the trust wanted to amend or revoke that trust, and all but one of the family members were prepared to go along. However, our long-time family attorney said that the grantor of a trust could not take such an action, not even with court approval, and that the one family member’s objection in any event would make it highly unlikely that the trust’s terms ever would be changed. David researched the law and found out that a [newly enacted] statute … open[ed] the door to bringing a lawsuit of this type even though such an action could not have been tried before. Mr. Worhatch brought the lawsuit on behalf of the grantor of the trust and all of the family members who agreed with his plans for modifying the trust’s terms. After the judge agreed that the case could not be thrown out because of the amended version of that statute, Mr. Worhatch persuaded everyone to sit down with a mediator and an equitable settlement ultimately was concluded … one that sidestepped family disharmony and brought peace when it eventually comes time to distribute the assets of the trust.
My family and our business have trusted David with these two very important legal issues and have come out on top. He fought for us like it was his very own personal fight. We have been asked several times … “Do you know a good attorney?” Our answer is always resoundingly, “YES!!! Call David Worhatch!”
