Trusts are used in estate planning as mechanisms to distribute assets in place of or in conjunction with Wills. Like Wills, Trusts can be contested. The validity of a Trust can be challenged on some of the same grounds as a Will contest. At the Law Office of Cynthia Hayes Hutchins, P.C., we are experienced in challenging the validity of Trusts. We also defend clients against Trust contests. In all matters, we carefully analyze the facts of the dispute and offer our clients reasoned legal advice and representation.
Administering a Trust involves making numerous decisions that can be called into question. While the terms of a Trust are typically very specific and detailed, it is impossible to predict every eventuality. When the decisions of the Trustee are disputed, this can result in Trust litigation. Cindy Hutchins is a lawyer skilled in handling Trust litigation matters. Well respected and sought after in the probate and trust litigation field, Cindy Hutchins has a keen understanding of Illinois law and the rights and responsibilities of Trustees and Trust beneficiaries.
