Helping You Fulfill the Role of Trustee

A trust is a device that allows specific assets to be held and used by one party — the trustee — for the benefit of another — the beneficiary. Over the years, trusts have come to be used for a wide variety of estate planning and other purposes. Our attorneys assist trustees with the administration of many different types of trusts, including the following:

  • Revocable living trusts
  • Special needs trusts
  • Charitable trusts
  • Qualified personal residential trusts
  • Dynasty trusts
  • Life insurance trusts
  • Spendthrift trusts
  • Education trusts

Every trustee has certain responsibilities that they are legally expected to observe. In particular, if the trust is being used to transfer a deceased person’s property to future generations, there are legal requirements you must comply with in order to effect the transfer properly. We can assist you with all of your trust administration responsibilities, including the preparation of tax returns for the trust.

Representing You in Trust Litigation

Although placing property in a trust can avoid the public and often complicated process of probate administration, people who are dissatisfied with the actions of the trustee may initiate litigation to challenge his or her authority or decisions.

Our attorneys represent trustees and other interested parties in trust litigation. We also represent trustees who are involved in tax disputes with the IRS or other tax authorities. Don’t hesitate to contact us to consult an experienced trust administration lawyer.
