Santa Monica Trust Administration Attorneys
Trusts can fulfill many legal and financial objectives, including eliminating or minimizing estate taxes, avoiding probate, setting aside assets for designated beneficiaries, providing for a disabled family member and asset protection.
Once a trust grantor dies, there are ongoing administrative tasks that must be handled by the trustee. These include:
- Providing all legally required notices
- Allocation assets to subtrusts
- Investing trust assets
- Preparing tax returns
- Notifying beneficiaries of important developments
- Distributing assets to beneficiaries
At Sultan & Sultan, we represent trustees, grantors and beneficiaries in a broad range of trust administration matters. We guide our clients through the entire trust administration process. Our lawyers have significant experience representing clients in Santa Monica, Malibu, West Los Angeles and throughout Southern California, as well as clients from across the United States and around the world who are dealing with trust administration issues in California.
If you are engaged in a trust dispute or will contest, we can provide you with the strong representation you need. Trust disputes often arise between beneficiaries and trustees when beneficiaries suspect the trustee of improper management of the trust, trust fraud and other misconduct. Trust litigation can also involve disputes over the validity of the trust.
At our law firm, we prepare trusts and other documents with care and attention to detail, to help our clients avoid future trust disputes. When disputes arise, however, our attorneys are prepared to resolve them through negotiation or litigation.
