"Clients were victims of bank fraud which included the forgery of their signatures and an alleged check-kiting scheme in which the clients were unaware of at the time they were asked to execute a loan to cover the losses arising from the scheme. Hale Freeland obtained the bank’s files, challenged issues related to the underlying bank loans and transactions and brought the suit which challenged the loans and sought recovery of the clients' payment of those loans. Reed Martz and Hale Freeland negotiated a settlement of the claims with the financial institution which the court approved. Each party settled for their own particular reasons and was recently approved by a federal court."
As her husband’s health began to deteriorate, three of a couple’s four children sued them to gain control of their parent’s multi-million dollar estate and tried to leave their mother with insufficient funds to even pay her bills, maintain her small home or her modest lifestyle.

The Chancery Court appointed an independent conservator, secured the family's assets and obtained an adequate allowance for the wife. After the husband's death, the conflict was resolved, giving the widow the income and assets her husband intended for her.
