  • "The money is most definitely helpful and will go to extremely good use, there's no doubt about that. Again, thank you for all the hard work you and the staff of Brandenburger and Davis did on my behalf. I never knew I was part of such a complex genealogy."

  • “I wish to extend my sincere thanks for all your efforts and hard work in locating William’s cousins. This was indeed a surprise. I never had a chance to meet my cousin.”

    - An heir from Bayonet Point, FL

  • "I would like to commend you on the professional manner in which you have handled the estate. The pleasant attitude and prompt attention you have given at all times to expedite the settlement was greatly appreciated."
    -An heir from Santa Ynez, CA.

  • "I received the check today and want you to know how grateful I am for all your hard work."

  • "Thank you for all your time, effort and results!"

  • "I wish to thank you very much for all your work with the [] account. This couldn't have come at a better time. Being retired with no pension and relying mostly on Social Security, your work has made my wife and my self's life, a little easier."

  • "I would like to thank you for another one, finding me and another too, been to a happy conclusion . . . Words cannot convey the grateful and happy relations I was able to help out with this unexpected circumstance."

  • "The correspondence from California brought many hours of wonder, story-telling and laughter to our family as our parent's illness failed them. This memory will be held in our hearts always. My mother was very humble and giving and this would have made her smile."

  • "Someone told me a few years ago that I would come into some money. I said "when pigs fly". Thank you and your company for finding me."

  • "As the poster lady for cynicism, you can imagine my surprise at receiving the check. I appreciate your courtesy, and the courtesy extended by Bill Davis. Of course it was a pleasure working with you, however, for more reasons than the money. In the future, please don't hesitate to inform me of any other of my father's deceased cousins who might have overlooked assigning their estate. Thanks guys. Great work!!"

  • "Along with sending you the enclosed signed receipts, I wanted to express my thanks to you for the professional manner in which you handled the distribution . . . As both the wife and mother of attorneys, I am aware of the lengthy procedure taken by courts so I was not surprised to see the matter take a long time. But you kept us all informed very well and I was impressed by your efficiency and attention to detail."

  • "My brother and I wish to thank you for looking into the records and finding that there were relatives living and entitled to some of the assets of our aunt. We would never have realized our entitlement had it not been for your very skilled eyes and knowledge in detecting the omission on the Petition for Probate."
    -An heir from Marcy, NY.

  • "Just a quick thank you for your efforts in locating family members and caring enough to try to locate individuals concerned with the estate. . . Paying off dental bills, helping with home repairs, and a day of pampering certainly helped lift our spirits at a stressful time in our lives."

  • "I want to show my appreciation and say "Thank you" for bringing to conclusion something that first started 2 ½ years ago when my telephone and answering machine kept receiving calls from Brandenburger & Davis . . . For a while I disregarded them all, as did others I'm sure. Though we were related, I obviously never knew the decedent personally. I wish I had. The check is certainly appreciated in these uncertain economic times."

  • "I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your time, effort you did to help us in this distribution of our share of the money. I am very thankful for my share and will save it for retirement. I am single and have been working since I was 19 years old, I am now 69 and thankful God has given me my health to continue to work. May God bless you and your family."

  • "This is just a short note to apologize for not thanking you sooner for your work on my behalf. This episode was one of the most interesting so far in my life. There have been a few but I won't bore you with the details. I would like to thank the person who was able to "save the day" for us but I forgot his name. If you are permitted to do so please let me know how I can reach him to thank him. If not perhaps you can extend my thanks for me. I am also curious to know if the cousins are the only relatives living in the U.S. We were never a close family but I have always wondered how many were around. Again, many thanks and I hope you enjoy the money from your good work as much as I have enjoyed mine from doing absolutely nothing. I am really blessed."

  • "I want to thank you for what you did for me and my family. I have always said I wish I had a rich uncle to leave me all his money. I never would have dreamed of this. If it wasn't for you none of this would have happened. So once again, thank you very much."

  • "It is easy for us to see that some excellent detective work has been done here, and none of us should take it for granted. As you have stated in your most recent letter, this has been a most unusual case, watching fact after genealogical fact being uncovered. Nice to be associated with such fine people.”

    - An heir from Chicago, IL

  • "Thank you so much for sending a check to Stanford University...we are grateful to add this money to the Geigenmueller Scholarship Fund which provides financial aid to students of the School of Business. We appreciate all your help in making this gift happen."
    -Stanford University

  • "This is in response to your efforts in closing my half-sister's estate. Thank you so very much in the efforts you put forth in locating us legitimate survivors and the case has carried forth successfully as we have each received a check from [the] estate . . . We appreciate the efforts that have been made on our behalf and thanks again."

  • "Thank you so much for your work in locating us. [We] were all we were aware of but the other names appear in family records and are familiar. Unexpected money is always a pleasure, though it is usually something that happens to someone else! In our case it is extremely welcome."

  • "Thank you so very much for your dedication and disposition to the estate . . . I shall enjoy the harvest and appreciate the hard work of your organization."

  • "Thank you for your effort in this matter and your kind attention for every detail."

  • "Just a quick note of thanks for all of your work, and that of all the fine folks at Brandenburger & Davis in working with [] Estate. I am sure I can speak for all of the family members who have benefited from your great work: Bravo to you all!!! Yes we have all done well financially in this matter. But it is easy for us to see that some excellent detective work has been done here, and none of us should take it for granted. As you have stated in your most recent letter, this has been a most unusual case, and we who have not been involved in the investigation have still stood by in awe after watching fact after genealogical fact being uncovered. Just that in itself has been a thrill...especially considering the time period being investigated and the countries that needed to be looked at. Again, many thanks. Nice to be associated with such fine people. Please be so kind as to express our thanks and good wishes to all of those at Brandenburger & Davis who have had a hand in bringing this case to a happy close."

  • "Can't thank you enough for all you have dedicated working this matter. We truly appreciate all you have done. God Bless."

  • "We simply want to say thank you for your work on our behalf. We realize that without you we would never have received any of this inheritance, and we sincerely appreciate being a part of this issue."

  • “I would like to thank you for your help in obtaining the estate of our grandfather for my brother, sister and me. No one in the family, including my father’s relatives, had any idea of our grandfather’s whereabouts.”

     -An heir from Wilmington, DE

  • "I want to thank you all so much for the efforts in my behalf in this matter. It feels as if I won the lottery!! Thank you all!"

  • "As you know, we has no knowledge of this case were it not for the firm of Brandenburger & Davis. Please convey our appreciation to them. This windfall came at just the right time to delay our application for Medicaid . . . We are grateful, thank you again."

  • "Thank you for taking the time to find all of the heirs and to enable us to receive this special gift. It has been an interesting process. Thank you for your efforts."

  • "My husband, Edward, and I wish to thank everyone in your corporation for your caring service. You were more than kind and friendly in explaining the trials of not having a will. Believe me, we will get one. We have one, but will update it to a trust."

  • "This is just a note of thanks for your professional assistance in the above matter. While the process took longer than I expected, I am pleased with the results. Frankly, things like this usually take place only in a Hollywood script. I am still astonished at all of it. I must admit that I had my doubts when your firm first contacted me. Then later when the estate was being revalued because of the declining real estate market, I thought "here we go". Now that the proceedings are closed and the estate distributed, I can begin to absorb the reality of it. I again thank you for your services."

  • "Let me just take this opportunity to thank you for your hard work and representation. It has been very much appreciated. Best wishes for the coming season."

  • "I wish to express my sincere thanks to you and your company for all the diligent research in regard to the [] Estate. Certainly, none of my family would have known of this relative and our connection to his estate. Could you please send me the family tree information so that we can keep it as a part of our history? Your information would prove to be invaluable in searching our family tree. Again, thank you for all your hard work and best wishes in all your investigations."

  • "I want to take the time to thank you for all your hard work in locating my mother for her inheritance. She can rest easy and live her remaining years fully!"
