Our Trust Litigation Attorneys Provide Skilled, Experienced Representation
Most estate planning tools are documents. Trusts, however, are legal entities, and are significantly more complex. They must be managed by a trustee, which can add layers of complexity.
If you find yourself in a dispute related to a trust or the work of a trustee in San Diego or elsewhere in California, consult our experienced trust litigation attorneys at Frisella Neilson, APC. Our lawyers have decades of combined legal experience, they often take a team approach to cases and our firm has a strong track record of delivering favorable results for our clients, both in and out of the courtroom.
When Is Trust Litigation Necessary?
Often, trust lawsuits are centered on the actions, inaction or alleged misconduct of the trustee or trustees. Our attorneys have represented clients in matters related to:
- Incomplete or suspicious accounting and reporting of trust assets
- Breach of fiduciary duty on the part of the trustee
- Disputes that arise between co-trustees
- A Trustee fails to act and there is no one else designated as successor trustee
- Removing a trustee who has lost the confidence of the beneficiaries but refuses to resign
If your dispute can be resolved outside the courtroom, a settlement often saves time, money and stress for all involved. This is the first avenue our attorneys will explore. If an agreement cannot be reached, however, we are fully prepared to vigorously represent your interests in the courtroom.
We Have High Standards
Our lawyers hold themselves to high ethical standards regarding how we practice law and how we treat clients. As a client, you can expect access to your attorney, prompt responses to your questions and regular updates about your case.
These standards also extend to the types of cases we take. To the degree possible, we represent clients who are sincerely seeking an appropriate resolution to their matter. If you believe you are on the “right side” of your litigated dispute, we invite you to tell us your story and learn about your options.
