Trustee Defense


Removal and Surcharge of Trustee


     A trustee may be removed by a co-trustee or beneficiary for various reasons, the most common of which include: (1) where the trustee has committed a breach of the trust, (2) where the trustee is insolvent or otherwise unfit to administer the trust, (3) where hostility or lack of cooperation among co-trustees impairs the administration of the trust, (4) where the trustee fails or declines to act, and also (5) where the trustee's compensation is excessive under the circumstances.


     If you are a trustee and received a petition to remove you as trustee, you have to act quickly.  Immediately contact the attorneys at the Kelly Law Firm, Orange County, Los Angeles, and Long Beach trustee defense attorneys to find out what should be the next move.
