A Roller Coaster Ride of a Case!
What's this lawyer thinking?
Why would an established attorney, who already had a flourishing law practice, even consider taking on a group of strangers who had found his name on the Internet and had no means of paying him? And why would he even bother with a case he initially felt he had not a snowball's chance in hell of winning?
Who will end up with Art Hadley's fortune?
In 1913, Art Hadley invented the expansion bracelet, now a worldwide standard for jewelry and wristwatches, and amassed considerable wealth. He passed it on to his children, but when they died, Art's fortune was up for grabs.
Told from two perspectives - that of the attorney, who negotiated a $1.8 million settlement, and one of the heirs he represented - this true story tells how a group of cousins, some of whom had never met, could unite and journey on a six-year odyssey of setbacks, divisive stubbornness and stunning victories.
