Protecting Beneficiaries’ Rights In Huntington Beach
If you are a beneficiary in a California probate, you may have questions about the process and about your rights to an inheritance. In some cases, beneficiaries have serious concerns about whether or not estate administrators are fulfilling their duties.
At The Law Office of Stuart A. McKenzie, in Huntington Beach, I have more than 35 years of experience representing beneficiaries and other parties in probate and estate administration matters. If you have any concerns about the administration of an estate, I can answer your questions and provide you with the legal guidance and advocacy you need.
Are You Being Treated Fairly?
As the beneficiary of an estate, you have rights under California and federal laws. The executors and estate administrators bear a fiduciary duty to you – that is, they must abide by the law and treat you fairly in regard to inheriting property and carrying out the directions of the will.
If you suspect you are not being treated fairly, it is important to consult with an experienced probate attorney. Taking action now can protect your rights and limit the chance of losing an inheritance that is rightfully yours or getting engaged in costly and contentious estate litigation.
