Attorneys who advocate for seniors and the disabled often cite a specific event or personal relationship as their inspiration. Amos’ aha moment came early in his career, when his mother-in-law told him she was selling her home. Asked why, she responded that she’d been told to do so by a man who was trying to sell her an annuity.
Amos investigated and discovered that the annuity was wholly inappropriate for a person in her situation and the sale of her home was unnecessary. Fortunately, Amos intervened before it was too late. He was able to structure his mother-in-law’s assets in such a way that she had enough to live on comfortably for the rest of her life. She was even able to put her grandson, Amos’ nephew, through college.
