Fiduciary Beneficiary Disputes | Los Angeles Attorneys | Trustee Disputes

        Many times, Los Angeles Trustees as fiduciaries and beneficiaries do not always see things from the same point of view which may result in protracted disputes involving attorneys.    While the fiduciary has the obligation to protect all of the beneficiaries, each beneficiary may have separate ideas of what protection they need.  At Sirkin Law Group, we have helped resolve fiduciary and beneficiary disputes and litigation cases for over 22 years.

Typical cases involving disputes between Los Angeles fiduciaries and beneficiaries are stated below:

​1.   Trustee fails to give the trust documents to the beneficiaries.

2.   Trustee fails to account to the beneficiary.

3.   Trustee is a beneficiary and does not want to sell the house because he/she or his/her a child lives in it.

4.   It is taking too long for the beneficiary to receive his/her money under the trust or estate.

​5.   Trustee is investing the assets of the trust in the wrong investments and has lost money for the trust.

6.   Trustee has misappropriated or stolen the assets of the trust or estate.

7.   Someone is in possession of a trust asset and will not transfer it back to the trust.

Below are some frequently asked questions asked by beneficiaries in disputes involving beneficiaries and trustees:

1.   Do I have a right to see the trust documents?   Yes, if you are a beneficiary or heir at law.

2.   The trustee will not sell the house, can I force him to sell it?  Yes, if the sale is required to make the distribution to all beneficiaries.
