Experienced Trust Lawyers for a Complex Dispute

Successful results depend on understanding the problem at hand and knowing what options exist to resolve it. We have handled many trust litigation matters, involving everything from allegations of trust mismanagement to the illegal selling of assets. Our thorough knowledge of trusts and estate administration is a key resource when fighting for and protecting your interests in court. We are familiar with the rules and requirements for proper creation of a trust, and for acceptable management and oversight of a trust by the trustee. We have an intimate knowledge of the statutes and Court decisions that bear on such issues.

Unlike some will disputes, trust litigation is an intricate and exacting process. Such a dispute usually turns on the highly specific language of a trust document, and you must have an attorney who can interpret that language and apply the sometimes convoluted laws to the situation.

Taking the Appropriate Action

Our litigation background gives us with the necessary skills to thoroughly investigate your trust matter and resolve your dispute. During the course of your case, we will:

  • Obtain records of the trust assets and any documents stating where and with whom the assets are kept
  • Ensure the trust is administered in an appropriate matter
  • Identify any misappropriation of assets
  • Seek to remove a trustee who has violated his or her duty
  • Resolve allegations of undue influence or other breaches of fiduciary duty
  • Take other appropriate measures to obtain a successful outcome

Whatever action is necessary in your situation, we will explain the process and keep you informed during every stage of the case.

Disputes can arise over any type of trust - revocable living trusts, irrevocable trusts, insurance trusts, testamentary trusts, special needs trusts and others. If you believe a trustee mishandled the administration of a trust fund, or think some other problem exists, we encourage you to contact us for an initial consultation, before the problem continues. We have the experience and resources necessary to represent your interests. Call us at 302.353.1750 or contact our office online.
