Disinherited LA Trust Beneficiaries | Using Contingency Fees for Recovery

LA Trust Litigation Contingency Fees.jpg

Los Angeles trust beneficiaries who have been wrongfully disinherited because of fraud, undue influence or financial elder abuse face an uphill battle to recovery. Each case involves tasks supporting the development and substantiation of a convincing factual case reinforced by robust legal underpinnings.

Wronged beneficiaries have a wide choice of lawyers and law firms to assist them in the civil prosecution against bad trustees and estate interlopers. That said, the costs of paying hourly attorney's fees in probate, estate and trust litigation puts the ability to fight for a judicial remedy out of reach for many people. While the use of contingency fees in probate, estate and trust litigation is not necessarily novel many law firms accept only hourly arrangements.

Hackard Law, along with a number of other experienced California law firms, regularly represents abused beneficiaries by contingency fee arrangements in prosecuting actions against estate interlopers, financial elder abusers and errant trustees. This is an important point for those people who would otherwise be frozen out of the system. It is particularly important because many times it is the estate wrongdoers themselves who have seized a decedent's financial assets that would otherwise be available to secure counsel.

Hackard Law prosecutes civil cases against estate wrongdoers on behalf of abused beneficiaries, disinherited heirs and others damaged in probate, trust and estate matters throughout Los Angeles and Southern California. We comply with the statutory and ethical guidelines that define the envelope in which contingency fees may be available. For those who have an estate matter that needs resolution and the need for a contingency fee, call us at Hackard Law: (916) 313-3030. We'll be happy to speak with you.
