One of the most common reasons to hire a trust litigation attorney is to have legal guidance and assistance with the administration of the trust after the death of a loved one. Wills, trusts and the complexities surrounding the probate process require legal assistance, particularly in larger estates. While your loved one may have prepared a will and trust to pass on the estate to loved ones, complications can and do arise. Any improper conduct on behalf of a trustee or estate administration may lead to the improper distribution of trust property, inappropriate investments being made, illegal use of funds or assets in a trust, or a failure to file necessary tax returns. Each of these is a serious matter and must be addressed carefully and correctly.
A trust litigation attorney can also be of great benefit in establishing an estate plan that is more likely to survive the various possible challenges from taxing authorities or individuals. Depending on your various assets, debts and other properties, a skilled trust litigation attorney can help you compile all the necessary documentation to see that your wishes will be met following your death.
