EARL JONES, HOW HE FOUND HIS CLIENTSHome > Blog > EARL JONES, HOW HE FOUND HIS CLIENTS
Mr. Jones has been accused of using personal and familial connections
to find his clients. But court records reveal that he also found
customers â€“ some not far from death â€“ in hospitals and old-age homes,
or among the recently bereaved. Documents show Mr. Jones was named
estate executor for a number of old, ailing, vulnerable people who died
within days or weeks of their wills being signed or amended.
Gordon McGilton was the lawyer in some of the probate cases. He was
convicted in 2007 of defrauding elderly clients of $1.7-million in unrelated cases.
