Trust And Probate Litigation

Like a will, the validity of a trust can be contested. Many issues can result in trust litigation, including:

  • Incomplete or incorrectly written trusts that are too general or too specific
  • Marriages, divorces, blended families or other family changes that occur after a trust is written
  • Changes in assets that occur after a trust is written
  • Trustee issues, such as delayed or incorrectly distributed assets and mismanagement

These matters require guidance and representation from an experienced lawyer. I am Jeffrey T. Vanderveen, a California attorney who has been practicing in this area of law since 1983. I can represent trustees and beneficiaries in all aspects of trust litigation, including those pertaining to breach of trustee duties, trust contests and beneficiary claims. My goal is to protect your rights and interests while working toward the best possible resolution.
