Matthew Bender Practice Guide: California Trust Litigation, a one-volume practice guide, provides detailed, practical, up-to-date, and authoritative information on litigating disputes arising out of the creation and operation of trusts in California. Key topics include:

•   Proceedings attacking the validity and/or existence of a trust (trust contests).
•   Disputes involving the ownership of trust property.
•   Petitions for instructions relating to the operation of a trust.
•   Compelling a trust accounting.
•   Suits involving claims of breach of duty or malfeasance by the trustee.
•   Removal of a trustee.
•   Related matters such as financial abuse of an elder or dependent adult by a trustee, case evaluation, ethical issues, the recovery of trustee and attorney's fees in litigation, and the mediation and settlement of trust disputes.

Trust litigation can be a highly lucrative field for California attorneys. However, it presents unique issues and procedures that set it apart from other types of general civil litigation, and presents many pitfalls for the unwary and inexperienced. This publication gives estate planners and general civil litigators the basic guidance that they will need to expand their practice into trust litigation, as well as serving as a handy reference source of up-to-date practice information for experienced estate litigators.

Matthew Bender Practice Guide: California Trust Litigation establishes a new standard in practice guides. You'll find streamlined chapter organization, precise guidance on finding pertinent online information, cross references to additional relevant content, and Strategic Points, Warnings, and other types of practical tips highlighted by icons and headings that classify the tips by type so you can tell at a glance what type of information you will find in the tip. You can be sure you are fully prepared with the step-by-step guidance of checklists and the ready availability of time-saving forms.

Cross references give you instant access to relevant cases, statutes, rules, public records and secondary sources that include Matthew Bender's indispensable online publications. And with updates twice a year, you'll always have fast, accurate and up-to-date answers to procedural questions.

Matthew Bender Practice Guide: California Trust Litigation offers expert analyses, procedures, forms, and references for total research and guidance support.
