Trust Dispute



After a trust beneficiary was deprived of her annual trust distribution by her trustee brother, she hired Burns to make it right. Using strategic litigation tactics, Burns successfully secured the voluntary resignations of the brother and his lawyer from the trust; forced the brother to return the excessive trustee fees that he had generously paid himself, despite minimal trustee responsibilities; garnered a sizable and immediate distribution of cash from the trust for our client; and made sure the former trustee brother paid all legal fees incurred in the case. Last, but not least, a Burns attorney was named as successor trust protector to ensure the client’s trust would be protected for years to come. All without ever going to trial.
