Trust Disputes

April 29, 2021

Individuals put in charge of a trust, referred to as trustees, are expected to act solely in the best interest of the trust and its beneficiaries. If a trust is mismanaged, or the trustee fails to execute their duties, legal action may be required to resolve the matter and put the assets held within the trust back into trustworthy hands.

At the DeChello Law Firm, we offer representation to families and beneficiaries with concerns related to trust disputes. Our extensive knowledge and experience allow us to offer the guidance you need to voice your concerns over the management of a trust.

Detailed Advice on A Wide Range of Trust Disputes

Trust disputes arise for a number of different reasons, including:

  • Improper conduct by trustees

  • Varying interpretations of the trust

  • Questions over wealth transfers

  • Undue compensation collected by fiduciaries

  • Unauthorized gifts or asset transfers

  • Conflict of interest claims

  • Undue influence

Whatever the reasons leading to your trust dispute concerns may be, we work to provide the informative advice and guidance you need to pursue resolutions.
