A Navy servicemember stationed abroad seeks pro bono assistance with a real estate matter. The servicemember’s father died intestate and was survived by his spouse—the servicemember’s mother—and the servicemember. The deceased owned real property. However, two other relatives claimed to be the heirs and took actions to sell the property to a real estate company. The real estate company became aware that the servicemember and his mother may have a claim to the property, but have threatened litigation. The servicemember seeks pro bono help to resolve this matter without litigation. He would like to restore title to the property or reach a fair settlement to sell the property.
