Protecting Your Rights and Interests
For both trustees and successor trustees, it can be difficult to fully understand and meet all the obligations and functions required of them under the law. Asset management and accounting responsibilities often prove complicated and can produce a lot of stress. They can also lead to problems for you because you are a fiduciary under Texas law. As your legal representative, we will work to ensure you understand your role and your legal duties. We want to help you avoid legal disputes and potential liability.
Conversely, if you are a beneficiary and believe that the benefits you are entitled to are being ignored or misappropriated, you may be able to bring your claim to court.

- Trust interpretation
- Trust funding
- Trust modifications
- Trust termination
- Trust distribution
