Donald's father, records note, died in 2005, "leaving Donald none of his substantial estate." (Poor thing!)
"Uncle Larry expressed to Brill a desire to rectify the wrong committed by Donald's father who, in essence, disinherited Donald."
While everything should have gone swimmingly for Donald, Uncle Larry's beloved nephew found that he had no such luck.
As it turns out, Uncle Larry had another will floating around, and Brill didn't do anything to override the then-10-year-old doc, Donald claims.
Enter Richard Gertler, Donald's brother.
Donald claims that Brill "switched sides" and started to represent Richard, who stood to get more money from the first will.
Now, Donald has taken Brill to court in hopes of getting some of "his" money.
But there is good news for the wily siblings: Their relationship couldn't get any worse.
