The role of trustee can be intimidating as it is a huge responsibility regardless of the size and nature of the trust. Trustees have a legal responsibility to fulfill the wishes of the person who established the trust, and they can be pulled between the competing interests of beneficiaries. With help from an experienced estate planning lawyer, however, trustees can receive the guidance and counsel required to succeed in this role.
At BSLF, our practice is dedicated to assisting individuals, families, and corporate fiduciaries with estate planning matters, including advising and counseling trustees throughout the trust administration process. We also have the experience and knowledge required to represent executors and trustees through a wide range of concerns, including trust modifications, trust divisions, terminations of trusts and other fiduciary matters.
