Buffington Law Firm's trust dispute attorneys have been asked to solve many problems relating to misbehaving problem successor-trustees of revocable or "living" trusts. One of the most common problems with trusts once the trustors die and a successor-trustee takes over is the way successor-trustees sometimes handle trust money. Since living trusts "avoid probate," they are ordinarily not under the supervision of the Superior Court. While avoiding probate is often touted as a benefit of living trusts, it can also lead to problems with successor-trustees and the way they handle the trust money and assets.
Buffington Law Firm's team of trust dispute litigation attorneys has decades of experience in dealing with problem situations involving California Living or "revocable" trusts. Many of the problems that we are asked to solve deal with situations in which, for some reason or another, the trust was not wound up and terminated with the assets promptly distributed to the beneficiaries.
