In trust litigation, legal disputes over a trust are managed and resolved. This legal process involves disputes between beneficiaries, who inherit assets from a trust, and trustees, who are responsible for handling and distributing the assets in a trust. Additionally, trust litigation may be used to challenge the validity of a trust or the revocation of a trust.
Cases of trust litigation go to probate court independently. In trust litigation cases involving actions against a trustee for mismanagement of trust assets, the beneficiary may claim damages, including repayment of the damages to the rightful trust beneficiaries, as well as a disgorgement of profits made by the wrongdoer.
The attorneys at Zoecklein Law are highly experienced in trust litigation proceedings. We’ll handle your case with care and professionalism.
Estate planning ensures that all of the assets within your estate are distributed according to your wishes. Passing away without a comprehensive estate plan may leave your assets to be distributed through a legal process called intestate succession. This may put your loved ones through a long, expensive legal process to obtain their rightful inheritance. Additionally, you’ll lose the ability to choose who manages the process of distributing your assets.
