|Lets put them together for Kirsten Mide-Wilson (email@example.com), third generation owner of Jack Cewe Construction Ltd., an established road contractor in the lower mainland. What's her claim to fame? |
|Brilliance in business doesn't top the list. She figured she was too smart to pay an hourly fee and would instead get a lawyer to act for 20% of the winnings in her fight for a $100m inheritance from her grandfather, Jack Cewe. He left the bulk of his estate to his mistress, decidedly not his granddaughter. |
Mide-Wilson ended up with a bill for $17m, not the $ 2.5m the fight should have cost. She adamantly refused to pay. That bill was eventually reduced to $5m.
