Wallace Bock, a NY estate attorney for the reclusive heiress Huguette Clark, is facing an investigation over possible claims of mismanagement of Ms. Clark's money. The Gothamist reports that the Manhattan District Attorney's office recently questioned Wallace Bock's paralegal about a $10,000 dollhouse that Huguette Clark bought for Wallace Bock's granddaughter. There are also questions about an alleged $1.5 million in cash that Ms. Clark gifted to Mr. Bock for a bomb shelter in Israel in a community where Bock's daughter and grandchildren live.
The New York Post reports that Wallace Bock's colleagues were bemused by the generosity of the heiress. One year at the law firm's holiday party, his former paralegal Cynthia Garcia claims that he was given a mock will drawn up to look like the heiress' will naming him as a major beneficiary to the estate. Garcia claims that even after he realized it was a fake will, he kept it. Garcia alleges that after years of no contact, Bock recently called her to ask her not to talk about his dealings with Huguette Clark.
