post about Palm Beach Trust Attorney

When do you know if you need a Palm Beach Trust Attorney? And when should you have one who handles trust litigation? If you need someone who does more than “writes trusts“, read on. The key to your trust matter may just be selecting the “right” “firepower.” (If you believe that you need a trust litigator, you can read (FREE) more about what you may be looking for by CLICKING HERE.)

Trust Lawyering

So, to be clear, there are some really, really good Florida trust lawyers who write trusts.

They do estate planning.

They draft wills, powers of attorney, health care documents like health care proxies, and surrogates. And Living Wills.

That’s NOT what we are talking about here.

If you need a revocable trust, or a living trust, you need an estate planning lawyer. You don’t need a litigator who is in the “trenches” of lawsuits and litigation.

If you have a trust issue, dispute, lawsuit or challenge, read on.

Palm Beach Trust Attorney — understanding the trust” holy trinity”

The type of Palm Beach Trust Attorney that you may need should be one who has the “firepower“. The experience in courts, trying cases. Handling Trust Appeals. SERIOUS trial experience.

You need someone who not only understands the Florida Trust Code, Chapter 736.

But also the Evidence Code, Chapter 90.

And the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure.


Because if you are involved in a trust dispute over an accounting, an inheritance or a revocable trust, you may need someone to help you in court.

That may often mean a trial.

And what better way to be prepared than to have a lawyer who actually knows her way around a court room? Trying cases, not just saying that he “goes to court all the time.”

Does your lawyer know how to impeach witnesses? Get documents into evidence? Build a case? Have good trial tactics, strategies and instincts?

Here’s your take-away: if you are involved in a simple or complex Florida trust dispute, consider interviewing someone who handles trust litigation and appeals. Not someone who writes wills and trusts.

That distinction may be the key to resolving your matter.
