How Attorney Vincent Casiano Can Help You

Breach of Fiduciary Duty

Fiduciary duty is one’s commitment to act in another person’s best interests. In the context of a trust, this is the highest legal duty of a fiduciary or executor towards the trust’s beneficiaries. He should not engage in self-dealing or dishonest behavior. 

A breach of fiduciary duty occurs when the executor acts for his own interest. If you feel that a trust is mishandled, or if there is mismanagement, you can bring a claim against your fiduciary. Attorney Vincent Casiano can help with these types of claims.

Undue Influence

Undue influence may fall under elder financial abuse when a person exerts pressure on the testator to execute the trust or will of an elderly for his benefit. Elders who are ill or living alone are often victimized by this type of abuse. 

When there is evidence of undue influence, family members can assert their rights and have their loved one’s true intentions enforced by the probate court.

Determining whether undue influence occurred is not that simple. This is why you need the help of a San Diego probate & trust litigation attorney. 

Will & Trust Disputes

Legal disputes over wills and trusts occur when heirs disagree with the decedent’s final wishes. Often, this may come as a result of family members being emotionally and mentally vulnerable after the death of their loved one. 

When it comes to these matters, seeking help at an early stage prevents conflicts from further escalating. 

If you are in San Diego, you can reach out to wills attorney Vincent for assistance on your legal problem.

Lack of Capacity

Testators must be of sound mind before they can execute a will or trust. If a testator lacks the mental capacity to do so, other parties may contest the validity of the will or trust.

When family members do not agree to execute a trust, it can lead to fighting and litigation in the probate court. This is where an experienced probate litigator like Vincent comes in. He can bring legal challenges to a trust or will based on a lack of capacity. He has worked on numerous contested wills and trusts over the past decades.

Contesting Trust Amendments

In a revocable living trust, the grantor has the power to amend or annul the trust at any time. 

Sometimes, the grantor may have been forced to make amendments in the trust that are not reflective of his true intentions. He may have appointed you the beneficiary on a trust until a few days before his death, when an amendment was made.

If you want to contest the amendment, you will require the assistance of a trust litigation attorney like Vincent Casiano.

Contesting A Will

Amending an existing will is sometimes referred to as a will codicil. Before the will can be recognized as valid, it needs to follow the statutory procedures. 

When a testator dies, and a codicil appears, family members may be pushed to think that there was undue influence involved or even fraud. They may then try to contest the will.

Challenging a will can be complex, and this is best done with help from a probate litigation lawyer in San Diego.
