Giffen & Kaminski Wins Victory at Trial

GK won a victory at trial for a financial institution sued in its capacity as a trustee of a family trust.  The case was brought by half of the beneficiaries of a family trust who claimed that our client breached its fiduciary duty as trustee by misrepresenting to the beneficiaries that the final distribution would be divided differently than as stated in the trust document and that the trustee improperly made distributions of principle.

  • The cross examinations of the beneficiaries and of the opposing expert were both crucial to the victory.
  • The case presented many legal issues that were all decided in our client’s favor.
  • The Court granted our request that our client’s legal fees be paid from the suing beneficiaries’ distributive share of the trust.
