REPRESENTATIVE MATTERS

  • Secured an order removing a trustee with an award of attorneys’ fees and surcharge totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars against the predecessor trustee for trustee abuse claims based on the trustee improperly living in trust property, denying a co-trustee access to trust property, and for having stolen trust assets.
  • Successfully pursued conservatorship proceedings for loved ones in order to allow the conservator to make important medical and financial decisions for the incapacitated conservatee.
  • Obtained a six figure pre-litigation settlement on behalf of intestate heirs claiming ownership of a financial institution account on the basis the account was never intended to be an asset of the decedent’s trust.
  • Assisted family with initiation of guardianship proceedings to allow a relative and loved one to assume the care of a minor who tragically lost both of his parents.
  • Successfully defended a client’s ownership rights to her home against fraudulent efforts to steal her home. Swiftly negotiated relocation fees on behalf of elderly trust beneficiaries after a trustee tried to force them out of trust real property by resorting to illegal means.
  • Successfully brought a Motion to Expunge a Lis Pendens, securing attorneys’ fees in the process, removing a cloud on title to the client’s home on the basis that the underlying real property claim asserted by the opposing party lacked probable validity.
  • Obtained numerous orders on Heggstad Petitions on behalf of clients seeking a court declaration that the subject property be deemed an asset of the trust despite the settlor having failed to properly fund the asset into the trust.
