Re: Estate of Alvina M. Roloff, Deceased

Dear Ms. Kurtz,

The purpose of this letter is to summarize my concerns and to summarize my requests for information.

There are two items in your Affidavit of Attorney’s Fees refer to documents and/or letters that were allegedly sent to me by your office, as follows:

  1. In your Statement Number 35630, Dated August 28, 2001 there is a line item dated 08/21/01 with a description "Make list of items we have for review by Michael Roloff."; charging 0.92 hours at $75.00/hr.

    This document was never delivered to me in any form. I made a second request of you to fax this document to me in my letter dated October 23, 2001 after I noted this entry in your Fees. You ignored my request.

    After faxing you the first letter to you, I made a follow-up telephone call to your office to confirm that your office received the fax. Maxine Young confirmed that my fax had been received. She also informed me of the following:
    1. There were only a couple of months of recent bank statements available.
    2. Earlier records had been destroyed.
    3. I would have to go to the bank(s) directly to get the information that I had requested.
  2. In your Statement Number 35429, Dated July 27, 2001 there is a line item dated 07/18/01 with a description "Draft and FAX letter to Mike Roloff to furnish copy of our statements."; charging 0.58 hours at $80.00/hr.

    This document was never delivered to me in any form.

The following is a summary of my requests for information:

Face to face conversation in the waiting room of Jackson, Jackson & Kurtz, Inc. office; Marie denied my viewing of records that she brought to the office and she denied my hearing of her explanations regarding information related to the Estate. Neither Marie Cheatham nor Jill Kurtz informed me that there were any records at her office that I could review.

9/10/01

Jill Kurtz; Marie Cheatham

Restated request for documents as in earlier requests dated 8/21/01 and 8/28/01. Requested that the Estate not be closed until I am satisfied with reviewing the documents.

10/23/01

Jill Kurtz; Marie Cheatham

10/26/01

Jill Kurtz; Marie Cheatham

Summarized statements by Maxine Young during phone conversation 10/25/01 about 9:45 AM; Disputed claim that I am harassing them with requests for information related to the Estate; Disputed claim that I am putting computer viruses in Marie Cheatham’s computer.

I have made more than ten requests for information related to the Estate from July 10, 2001 to October 23, 2001.

Maxine Young led me to believe that you did not have the information that I requested.

You did not provide me with a list of specific documents that I could review, although you charged the Estate for compiling a list.

You did not respond to my request to go after the information I requested on my own time and at my own expense.

You did not fax me a letter the you charged the Estate for.

Marie Cheatham is still withholding information that could add assets to the Estate, i.e. loans, joint accounts and her actions as attorney-in-fact since 1991.

Marie Cheatham has not filed with the Court a fiduciary accounting for the time period that she was attorney-in-fact for Alvina Roloff. The Personal Representative should require the attorney-in-fact to file a fiduciary accounting, but since Marie Cheatham is the Personal Representative, she has not required herself to file the fiduciary accounting of herself as the attorney-in-fact. Marie Cheatham has refused to provide fiduciary accounting to the heirs of the Estate on a voluntary basis.

Sincerely,

Michael E. Roloff
