Abusive Brother

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about family conflict over business:

I am a 61 year old woman with an older brother who began by verbally abusing me a couple years ago and has now developed into me being physically afraid of him. We were in business together. I thought I was helping him by putting everything in my name, but it turns out he abused that by mishandling and mismanaging the business resulting in huge lawsuits.
