Accounting Contests

Estate proceedings require fiduciaries to periodically file accountings with the courts. In addition, beneficiaries of a trust or an estate may be entitled by law to request that the court require a fiduciary to file an accounting for estates and trusts over which the court has jurisdiction. A beneficiary may seek an accounting if he or she is concerned about the administration of an estate or trust. We will petition the court on behalf of beneficiaries who desire an accounting and will prepare accountings for fiduciaries who are required to submit accountings. If necessary, our litigators are prepared to question or defend fiduciaries and their accountings.
