The fiduciary responsibilities at issue in Trustee, Guardianship and Probate litigation, as well as the specialized rules applicable to such cases, call for skilled trial counsel experienced in such matters. The trial attorneys at Miller, Miller & Canby possess the knowledge and experience in these fields and work closely with clients and the Trust and Estate attorneys in the firm to successfully prosecute, or defend, these actions.
Disputes in these areas, particularly, befall clients at some of the most vulnerable and emotional times of their lives. In addition, accusations of breach of fiduciary duty attack the fiduciary's personal integrity and professionalism. The firm's attorneys understand and respect the impact upon their clients of accusations in this area and they work closely with their clients to successfully resolve such matters -- whether representing fiduciaries or beneficiaries. Firm attorneys have expertise, for example, in acting as divorce trustees. As legal owners of property belonging to a family trust, trustees have the right to make decisions regarding the property. An independent trustee can fulfill a very important role when the trustees involved are going through a separation or divorce; they can assist in facilitating decision making and presenting sound options and possibilities for disposition or allocation of the trust property.
And, when trial of any dispute is necessary, Miller, Miller & Canby's attorneys' trial advocacy skills are of utmost importance.
