Bad Trustees | California Trust Litigation | Drain the Swamp

The Judicial Council of California's 2016 Court Statistics Report indicates that approximately 30,000 probate court trials are heard each year in the state's Superior Courts.

Hackard Law regularly represents abused trust beneficiaries in California's major urban areas - including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, the East Bay and Sacramento. Bad trustees generate the need for trust litigation. Experience teaches that bad trustee actions are varied in scope and degrees of reprehensibility.

Hackard Law is currently engaged in civilly prosecuting over three-dozen trust litigation cases brought against trustees by wronged or abused beneficiaries and heirs. Conduct by trustees that gives rise to serious actions against them includes: Financial elder abuse; Forgery claims; Fraud and duress; Undue Influence; Breach of fiduciary duty; Invalid trust instruments; Settlor/Trustor Incapacity; Theft from the trust and beneficiaries; Excessive attorney expenditures; Co-trustee disputes; Care custodian issues; Disputed allocations between marital and survivor's trusts; Straw Buyer mortgage fraud; and the isolation of elderly settlors/trustors from other family members. Litigation over these matters is a bit like draining the swamp of trustee wrongdoing.

Bad trustees often try to place the blame of wrongdoing on beneficiaries. Such spurious allegations are part and parcel of disputed trust litigation and are regularly addressed in the civil prosecution of wrongful trustees.

If you suspect that your beneficial interests in a trust or estate have been or currently being manipulated by a trustee, we will be happy to speak with you about your rights. Call us at Hackard Law: (916) 313-3030. We look forward to speaking with you.
