Trust Litigation

Do Not Allow Yourself to Be Victimized by Trust Issues and Illegal Administration

Properly created and administered, a trust can preserve assets and provide the trust beneficiary with income security. But allegations of improper behavior by a trustee can lead to trust litigation. As a fiduciary, a trustee must put the interests of a beneficiary first, reveal any conflicts of interest or dual agency, and provide open, clear communication regarding activity involving the trust. Every year, a trustee must file a tax return and an annual report for a trust. Here, a level of transparency is required that should help expose financial mismanagement or general malfeasance. Our law office works with forensic accountants and other experts as needed in trust litigation cases involving violations of fiduciary responsibility.
