California Trust and estate litigation cases can become fairly complex. Many involve both probate and trust cases which can be tried separately or together. There may be many overlapping litigation issues in each case.
Contested accounting matters involving fiduciaries who have acted negligently or obsconded with the trust or estate funds often lead to mediation and resolution of those issues.
Having an expert in elder law who is familiar with fiduciary obligations specified in California law can help resolve disputes in the most efficient manner. The scope of the authority of a trustee is well defined in California law, and where there are doubts about the powers of the trusts, a petition for instructions can clarify the rights and duties of a trustee or executor.
