Los Angeles Trust Litigation | Righting the Wrong

Los Angeles Trust Litigation Right the Wrong.jpg

If you've ever had to go to the Stanley Mosk Probate Court, you'll notice a roster of upcoming trust and estate disputes - and there's no letup in the flow or volume of all these cases. In Los Angeles trust litigation, both individuals and families are seeking justice and the restoration of their rights. They've been victimized by a wrongdoer, and now they're summoning the courage to fight back. Wrongs should be righted, and injustice must be answered.

Hackard Law represents just these kinds of clients throughout the Los Angeles area - to safeguard their interests and begin the process of recovery. There are many reasons why conflicts break out over a family estate or trust, from the misconduct of a trustee to elder financial abuse and undue influence. But at root, these probate litigation battles share the same basic cause: someone has wrongfully taken assets or property that do not belong to them. That's a fact that's even spelled out in the California Welfare & Institutions Code. As a result, the rights of heirs or beneficiaries are violated by the bad actor, and family members are left out in the cold, often with no way to defend themselves or bring their case to court.

While the situation may look hopeless to the untrained eye, as experienced trust litigators we can often find reasons for hope that give our clients a fighting chance. One way to jump-start a viable case is to pursue litigation on the basis of contingency fees. We take a straightforward approach: our attorneys are only paid if and when you are awarded a settlement or judgment. We negotiate these fees between the client and the law firm and address disbursements and costs are in the attorney-client agreement. And we form our contingency fee agreements with clients in strict adherence to California's highest legal and ethical standards.

If you're a Los Angeles-area resident and want to recover your beneficiary rights, you can call us at Hackard Law. We have the strength, experience and resources for tough trust litigation, and we're dedicated looking out for our clients' best interests. Call us today at 213-357-5200. We look forward to listening to your story and seeing how we can help you.
