Schlesinger v. Jacob

By Jenna G. Rubin, Esq.

In this decision, the 3rd DCA adopts the requirement that an attorney’s services must benefit a ward or the ward’s estate in order to be entitled to fees. The Court focuses on the different standards under the statutes to determine entitlement to fees, versus the standard to determine amount and reasonableness of fees.
