For that matter, most people hate all attorneys.....until they need a good one for their defense.  LOL

This is a true statement.

you might also say "until they need a good one to collect the big win"  LOL

 

In fact I wonder if he hired another lawyer for the purpose of making the lottery claim.

      Why didn't they change their name before signing the ticket and claiming the prize? They should have changed their name to a very common name and had their lawyer do the press conference. If they would have kept their mouth shut about the name change and had a couple months of patience, it would have saved them a lifetime of headaches.

        Because lottery winners shouldn't have to turn their lives upside down in order to collect a jackpot.

            So you wouldn't take a couple months and proper precautions before claiming a prize? The  government set the rules, why wouldn't you take the time to protect yourself, even if it took a little work. 5 hrs of total work. 10 minutes to fill out name change application, 1 hour in court, 1 hour to update drivers license, 1 hour to update social security information.  Couple hours of travel time.  most states don't allow you to claim anonymously.

                      Great ages to win...early-mid forties. Many years to enjoy their bounty. Bully for them.
