From Premier Estate Planning Attorneys in Danville, Pleasanton, and Silicon Valley, California
The primary purposes of an estate plan include preserving wealth and protecting assets. They also ensure that the designated assets are transferred with the least consequence to the correct beneficiaries. However, the actions of fiduciaries, other beneficiaries or heirs at law or other interested parties could affect the state. They could even be to the detriment of a beneficiary. Therefore, the Danville Beneficiary Attorneys.at Temmerman, Cilley & Kohlmann, LLP offer comprehensive representation to protect your rights and interests.
We represent beneficiaries in estate planning disputes in Fremont, Walnut Creek, Danville, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Francisco, and other counties.
Representing Beneficiaries in All Types of Disputes
At Temmerman, Cilley & Kohlmann, LLP, our services include protecting both the estate’s value and the interest of a beneficiary in an estate. We also help monitor the fiduciary’s administration of the estate. In addition, we pursue financial elder abuse actions against persons who have, through wrongful means, acquired an interest in an elder’s estate to the detriment of the intended beneficiaries. We represent clients in disputes between beneficiaries, beneficiaries and trustees or other fiduciaries, and beneficiaries and other parties:
Protecting Estates in Notable Cases
One of our notable cases involved pursuing breach of trust actions against a trustee who had squandered over 20 percent of a multi-million-dollar trust in high-risk investment schemes. Doing so drastically decreased each beneficiary’s expected inheritance. That action also involved cancellation of a settlement agreement that the trustee improperly negotiated in favor of three of the five beneficiaries under the guise of preventing potential trust litigation.
In another case, we recovered on behalf of a beneficiary daughter. Her brother had improperly induced their elderly mother to alter the disposition of a multi-million-dollar estate through the disinheritance of the daughter. Our attorneys have also defended the validity of settlement agreements between beneficiaries.
