Conservatorship of Ethridge

Petition for Compensation//**GRANTED in part and DENIED in part.  $7,500 is awarded in reasonable attorneys’ fees and the remainder requested is denied.  Payment of the fees is ordered deferred until further court order given the limited assets in the estate available.  Both the $33,638 charged and the $19,128.82 sought are excessive given the limited benefit conferred on the conservatee.  At least part of the motivation for the petition appears to have reflected discord with the petitioner’s sister who was adequately caring for the conservatee at the time.

Yes
