You can expect clear and consistent communication. This includes counseling and guidance, interpretation of the legal process, regular updates, and explanation of the milestones along the way.

How we can help:

  • Removal of Trustee: If a Successor Trustee fails to act within a reasonable timeframe, or there is suspicion that a trustee is misappropriating funds, a Trustee can be compelled to produce an accounting or a distribution, or this may be cause for removal.
  • Representation of Beneficiary: If you are the beneficiary of an estate, via Trust or Probate, we will help you understand the nature of your potential inheritance, the anticipated process, and the expected timelines.
