San Diego Trust Litigation Lawyer

Trust and estate cases are often legally complex and uniquely emotional. As a result, informal discussions can quickly break down, and sometimes people will try to take advantage of the situation. At Brierton, Jones & Jones, LLP, we have handled these types of cases for decades and have a broad range of expertise in trust and estate litigation.

When Is It Wise To Hire a Trust Litigation Lawyer?

A trust is when a third party (called a ‘trustee’) is given the legal right to hold and manage your assets after you pass away.

It’s best to seek help from an experienced trust and estate litigation attorney when:

  • A trust is being contested
  • A trustee is not fulfilling their legal obligations (a breach of their fiduciary duty)
  • The accountings are being contested
  • A creditor’s claim has been rejected
  • There are disputes over a conservatorship or guardianship
  • There are claims of undue influence, lack of capacity, or elder abuse

I had the pleasure of working with Hilary Vrem during a family probate case. It was a difficult time for me as I was dealing with a loss in the family and needed assistance tackling the legal process. She provided me with a clear understanding of what to expect and guided me through my best options and next steps. She went above and beyond throughout our correspondence. I would happily recommend BJJ, their attorneys, and Hilary to friends and family who are dealing with a similar situation.
