Avoiding a Trust Trial in Florida: how to save thousands of dollars and still win
When Florida trust beneficiaries and trustees disagree on what a trust document says or means, ask a Florida court to interpret it. Get the trust document in front of the Florida judge, in the probate division, and if the trust language is clear and un-ambiguous, consider filing a motion for summary judgment. The interpretation of a trust, or a will, is a pure quesiton of law. The summary judgment motion may be the perfect way to resolve the issue of what the trust document says or means. And if you do it right, or soon enough, you can literally save thousands of dollars in attorneys fees and costs for your client, as compared to preparing for and attending a trial. Advocate hard. Litigate smart.
