Probate Litigation

BREA PROBATE LITIGATION LAWYERS

HANDLING PRETRIAL, TRIAL, APPELLATE, AND MEDIATION PROCEEDINGS REGARDING SUBSTANTIAL ESTATES
While many probate matters flow smoothly through the court system, some generate disputes resulting in litigation. This can be especially true when large sums of money and property are involved. When a probate case turns into a disputed matter, the skilled Brea probate litigation attorneys at The Fridley Law Firm can handle the complex legal issues.

Probate is the legal process by which a person’s debts are paid and assets are distributed upon his or her death. The entity that holds the assets until they are distributed to beneficiaries is referred to as an “estate.” When the probate process becomes derailed by disputes over how an estate will be distributed, contact the The Fridley Law Firm for experienced advocacy and legal counsel.

Trust Litigation

BREA TRUST CONTEST LAWYERS

HANDLING PRETRIAL, TRIAL APPELLATE, AND MEDIATION PROCEEDINGS INVOLVING SIGNIFICANT ESTATES
Individuals with substantial assets frequently establish trusts in addition to or in place of a will. A trust is a document created for an individual or entity, known as a trustee, to manage the trustor’s property.

Trusts can be created while the trustor is alive, known as an irrevocable or living trust. A revocable trust can also be established as a substitute for a will outlining how assets should be distributed when the trustor dies. Similar to a will, the validity of a trust may be contested. Trustees appointed to oversee the trust are sometimes sued for improper accounting and trust mismanagement.

When trust disputes occur, contact the law firm of The Fridley Law Firm in Brea, California, for experienced representation.

Conservatorship Litigation

BREA CONSERVATORSHIP LITIGATION ATTORNEYS

HANDLING PRETRIAL, TRIAL, APPELLATE, AND MEDIATION PROCEEDINGS REGARDING SUBSTANTIAL ESTATES
When an individual becomes incapacitated and can no longer manage his or her financial affairs, family members or other concerned individuals can ask the court to protect the incapacitated individual and appoint a conservator. Whether the conservator is an individual or an institution, the conservator has many important responsibilities and obligations.

The Fridley Law Firm represents clients in a variety of conservator actions, including:

  • Contesting the appointment of a particular conservator
  • Representation of conservators
  • Accounting of conservatorship finances
  • Breach of fiduciary duty concerns
  • Conservator malpractice allegations
  • Conservatorship mismanagement
  • Contesting the validity of the conservatorship-fraud, duress, undue influence, coercion, and lack of capacity

Conservatorship litigation requires a deep knowledge of both conservatorship law and litigation techniques. Because we narrowly focus on trust, estate and conservatorship litigation, we can develop tailored solutions to cost-effectively and skillfully resolve disputes.

If you are a conservator or have concerns about a conservatorship regarding a substantial estate, please schedule a consultation with one of our Brea estate and trust litigation attorneys.

YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN CONSERVATORSHIP LITIGATION CONCERNING CONSIDERABLE ESTATES
The litigation attorneys at our law firm focus solely on litigation involving substantial estates in Los Angeles, Southern California, and beyond. We understand firsthand the reasons conservators and conservatorships end up in litigation, such as:

  • Conservators may abuse their power through careless or reckless handling of conservatees’ assets. A conservator is obligated to use due diligence in the management and control of the conservatee’s assets. Professional conservators are held to a higher standard than non-professional conservators.
  • Anyone, including the proposed conservatee, family members, and friends, may object to the conservatorship in general, or to the specific choice of a conservator.
  • A conservator’s actions are continuously subject to review, attack, and defense.

The litigators at the Fridley Law Firm have extensive experience representing clients in conservatorship matters involving significant estates at competitive rates.
