Lawyer Kurt Kluin
The third lawyer on the case was Chanute Lawyer Kurt Kluin. I paid him a cash retainer up front and paid his monthly statements. Mr. Kluin filed the first amended Petition/Complaint in the Case adding Chanute Attorney John Rubow as a defendant as the Executor of the Estate. While Chanute Attorney Kluin was helpful and seemed motivated early on in the Case, he quickly succumbed to pressure (real and/or imagined) from Chanute attorney John Rubow and told me, “I have to work with him (John Rubow) every day, and withdrew from the case telling the Court that I was unable to pay his legal fees. I was current on my bill when he withdrew. While I believe that Kurt Kluin is a reputable lawyer and decent person it counted for little in my case. As in many cases, local politics rule locally.
Additionally - and again my older brother Ivan Lee Fail wrote a derogatory and threatening letter to Kurt Kluin as he did Ted Knopp telling Mr. Kluin that his practice would suffer if he continued to represent me. I would rate Mr. Kluin as a “C” as in Coward.
The day we buried my Dad, my son Adam asked my brother Ivan Lee Fail why they would not let us see Grand Pa before he died. He told my son. “It’s Larry’s fault that you were not allowed to see your Grand Pa before he died, you see Larry has to pay for his bad conduct.” He then told me. “You and Dad have had it your way all of these years, now you are not going to have it your way any longer.” You can see this do gooder Ivan Lee Fail in his White Hat on Google with all the Veteran memorials he likes to boost about. He also sent me death threat Emails in 2007 in an attempt to get me to drop the case.
