In addition to helping our clients create trusts for their personal or business use, we also represent trustees, settlors and beneficiaries in various types of trust disputes. We regularly advise trustee clients on interpretation of trust instruments and whether certain distributions are allowable, including distribution from special needs trusts and other specialized trusts that are subject to heightened state and federal requirements.

Wright Lindsey Jennings attorneys have helped to protect beneficiary rights when a trustee has breached its fiduciary duties under the trust instrument, as well as vigorously defended trustees who are wrongfully accused of violating their fiduciary duties. When a creditor of a settlor or beneficiary attacks a spendthrift trust to attempt to collect from trust assets, we have assisted trustees in withstanding the attack.

On the other hand, when a settlor has fraudulently transferred assets to a trust for the purpose of shielding them from creditors, we have assisted creditors with setting aside the fraudulent transactions.
