Our San Diego Trust Litigation Lawyers Fight to Win

If you are facing a legal dispute over a California will, trust, or probate matter, you should not try to handle the matter by yourself. You need the experienced legal counsel of a San Diego trust lawyer or San Diego probate attorney on your side.

California’s trust and will laws are complex. Trusts operate under a separate set of rules than wills. That means that filing a lawsuit to contest a will has no effect on assets held in trust. There are other sets of rules that apply to life insurance proceeds, beneficiary designations for retirement accounts, joint tenancy assets and pay-on-death accounts. Each asset may need to be challenged with a separate legal action, depending on how it is held. Our attorneys concentrate our practice on trust and estate litigation. The experience of the attorney representing you makes a difference in these types of legal disputes.

We have litigated complex trust and will cases in courtrooms in San Diego and throughout California. You have a right to challenge any suspected theft or abuse of a trust by a bad trustee if you are a beneficiary. Your legal rights as an heir or beneficiary can be enforced by going to court. It is up to you to stand up for yourself and demand enforcement of your rights.
