Why You Need a Trust Administration Attorney

Administering a trust can be intimidating for someone who is not experienced in the law or in finance as accounting, investment and legal issues may arise. Fortunately, a trustee is entitled to retain a knowledgeable trust administration attorney to help with issues such as:

  • Interpreting the terms of the trust to determine your obligations and/or the rights of trust beneficiaries.
  • Defending against lawsuits challenging administration of the trust.
  • Preparing accountings and other required information for beneficiaries.
  • Helping to file tax returns and pay other expenses of trust administration.
