A​ beneficiary of a Trust had significant rights in California.  Our lawyers and attorneys have protected beneficiaries in trusts since 1992.    An expert lawyer for beneficiaries, Mina Sirkin is a Los Angeles Certified Specialist trust lawyer who handles trust and probate litigation matters in California.

Trust beneficiaries in Los Angeles often do not know the extent of their rights under California law.

Protecting a beneficiary's rights, claims and objections in trusts and probate litigation matters involves taking immediate action.   Waiting too long to respond or object to petitions can often detrimentally affect the rights of beneficiaries.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS AS A BENEFICIARY AND PROTECT THEM

1.   Right to receive advice from an independent attorney.   Do not rely on advice given by the trustee or executor's attorney who does not represent you.

2.  Remember that if you do not question an action by a trustee or executor, you will waive your rights as to that action.  Trusts and Wills are often connected.  You should learn whether you are a beneficiary of a will or a trust, because the actions governing Wills or Trusts involve two separate types of cases.

3.  Review the trust or will with an experienced beneficiary attorney in trust and probate cases for immediate impact on your interest.

4.  File any necessary objections timely and watch out for no contest clauses. 

5.  Ask for an accounting in writing and keep a certified copy of your letter requesting the same.

6.  If you do not get a response to a request for an accounting, call your lawyer immediately.  Document your request for an accounting in writing, via certified return-receipt mail and keep a copy of your letter.
