Trustees have a fiduciary duty to manage trust funds properly and to protect the beneficiary's interests. This is true with any type of trust — revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, special needs trusts, charitable remainder trusts, testamentary trusts and more. When a party to the trust believes the trust has been mismanaged, they can bring a claim for:
- Trust mismanagement
- Improper use of funds / improper distribution
- Overestimating / underestimating trust funds and earnings
- Breach of fiduciary duty of trustee
We represent trustees and beneficiaries in trust disputes involving trust mismanagement. We also investigate and bring claims when a trust appears to be invalid or improperly funded.
Probate Litigation / Estate Administration Disputes
Many things can go wrong in probate. The administrators or executors may leave out heirs. There may be multiple Wills or Wills created under duress or through the exercise of undue influence. The appointed guardian may abuse his or her responsibilities. Our law office provides representation for all types of estate disputes, including disputes involving:
- Will contests
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Claims of undue influence
- Disputes over business valuation
- Guardianship abuse
- Abuse of power of attorney
- Creditor disputes
