Trust Litigation

A trust is a legal document that sets up a trustee as a person with a fiduciary duty to a set of beneficiaries specified by the trust. Typically, these duties include the prudent management and investment of assets owned by the trust as well as impartiality, loyalty, and the duty to not self-deal or otherwise create a conflict of interest with their role as trustee. A trustee also has a legal duty to account for their actions.
Often times disputes arise when the trustee engages in fraud, self-dealing, or some other form of trust mismanagement.
Litigation may be the proper response for other bad acts by a trustee. This could include a demand for an accounting or a distribution. In Texas, you never want to enter into any sort of trust litigation without experienced attorneys who both know your situation and the law.

The Chenault Law Firm is proud to serve clients throughout Denton County and all of North Texas with quality, effective, and compassionate trust litigation services.
