Trust Litigation

Trust Litigation Representation In Southern California

People engaged in estate planning are turning more frequently to the use of a trust instrument in addition to or in place of a will. A trust is a document where a person or entity (the trustee) manages the property of another (the trustor). Trust instruments can be created while the trustor is alive (an irrevocable or living trust) or to substitute for a will (a revocable trust) to provide for the distribution of assets upon death.
