The William Strier Case
Mr. Strier, had received settlement money for medical care which he had placed in a special needs trust. He became suspicious that his attorney and trustee were stealing money and he hired Attorney Trolard to represent him. Soon after, Mr. Strier shot his previous attorney while he was high on Demerol® and Oxytocin.
The shooting occurred outside the Van Nuys courthouse and was seen worldwide because a camera was present. After the shooting, Attorney Trolard represented Mr. Strier in several civil cases stemming from the management of the special needs trust.
