Estate Administration 
Is Best Handled By An Experienced Advocate

Many trustees do not know the full breadth of responsibility that comes along with the title of “trustee.” If you have recently assumed the role of trustee or successor trustee, speak with a knowledgeable estate administration attorney to be sure you understand and uphold your duties in a timely manner.

On the other hand, if you are a beneficiary or heir of a trust and the estate’s trustee is not upholding their duty to prompt, complete communication and distribution of the trust, you may have a right to litigate to move the process along.
