If she had no will and her money went to her live in boyfriend, it must have been in a jointly titled account of some sort, and that leaves you pretty much without a remedy, I am afraid. Depending upon the amount involved and the specifics of her account (like, was all of the money in the account put there by her as opposed to the boyfriend), you MIGHT have a case, but it sounds like a long shot to me. I charge by the hour.
