Attorney-at-law Lutz Arnold is a first-class lawyer and the nicest thing - he is also a nice person!
I have given him the following praise:
"You were great - in that you advised me immediately in my distress. You have a gift for making clear, concise statements and conveying them correctly via a perfectly accented voice. It was a joy to listen to. I knew in seconds "I am in the right and my fears of succumbing to the bank are unfounded". It was a nightmare before as the bank made my elderly father a pawn. And it was so reassuring to have a professional like you at my back if the bank had continued to play the game. I wish you all the best and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your quick, top-notch help."
The case: he helped unbureaucratically and quickly when I was completely devastated by the games played by a well-known bank. My mother had passed away and left savings. I represented my elderly, seriously ill father to the bank via a precautionary power of attorney so that the inheritance would be paid out. The bank did not want to recognize the unfortunately notarized power of attorney for weeks and really pulled out all the worst stops.
For example, the bank had the audacity to question whether my father was in a "sound state of mind" when the power of attorney was issued (years ago!). I should prove that first. Insolence. Then they even repeatedly rejected the certificate of inheritance from a German district court - without any legal basis. The bank kept stalling us for a long time, which ruined our nerves even more. They proceeded shamelessly. We were powerless and could not get our money for weeks.
Mr. Arnold, attorney at law, immediately overlooked the case in the first meeting and backed us up. The stress fell away immediately and we felt in good hands. Fortunately, the health care power of attorney was correctly drafted and the bank had to recognize it, as well as the certificate of inheritance. After the involvement of Mr. Arnold, the money was paid out quickly!
