Riverside Trust Attorney Explains Why to Pursue Trustee Mismanagement

 

The Grossman Law Firm, APC · · (951) 523-8307

Have you noticed a trustee making decisions that seem to be damaging assets or property in a loved one’s estate? If so, the trustee could be in violation of his or her fiduciary duties.

As a beneficiary, you are one of the people most vulnerable to a trustee’s missteps. It is crucial that you take action to protect yourself and the other beneficiaries. This may ultimately involve bringing a Riverside trust litigation case against them in California probate court.

A Successful Trust Litigation Case may Have a Positive Impact on:

  • The other beneficiaries. This can be especially true if your case includes beneficiaries who are minors or have special needs. The removal of an inept or malicious trustee could be life changing.
  • Law enforcement. Is your trustee is stealing or engaging in other criminal activities with estate assets? If so, he or she needs to face the consequences for his or her actions.
  • People involved in future trusts. Trusts are excellent estate planning tools, but only if they aren’t abused. Pursuing a trustee mismanagement case brings the issue into greater awareness. This may also help someone struggling with similar issues in the future.
