Trust Disputes and Contests

Representing Clients in Boston, Hingham, Braintree, Quincy, and the Greater Boston Area

When trusts are created, the creator of the trust (called the “grantor”) often has the desire to provide long-term benefits for those named in the trust (called “trust beneficiaries”). After the grantor has died, however, any issues that may arise concerning the management or disposition of trust assets must be decided by carefully reviewing the terms and conditions set forth in the trust itself.

When an issue arises concerning the distribution of such assets at the request of a beneficiary, in many cases the trust will be explicit in terms of how such issue should be resolved. In other instances, the trust may not be as explicit. The trust may provide discretionary authority to a trustee to make such determination, often taking into account other factors.

If you are a trust beneficiary and believe that your trust is not being administered properly, please contact me to discuss how I may be able to help.
