Lawyer who helped write Portsmouth's Geraldine Webber's will could see money from it
PORTSMOUTH - The lawyer who helped write the will for the estate of Geraldine Webber is now in line for $90,000 from it.
The estate is currently being managed by court-appointed attorney Pamela Newkirk, who filed a motion seeking approval of a $90,000 payment to Attorney James Ritzo for his services in helping set up Webber’s estate.
In Judge Gary Cassavechia’s decision during the estate trial, he wrote that Ritzo was not credible during the trial.
Webber was 92 when she said she had “fallen in love” with Portsmouth Police Officer Aaron Goodwin, which eventually prompted a trial denying Goodwin the $2.7 million inheritance.
