What Ifs??? Presented to the Estate Planner in California

What if, despite everyone’s good intentions, there is conflict after the death?

What if an heir or beneficiary or someone who thinks that they should have been made an heir or beneficiary complains?

What if a trustee never accounts to the beneficiaries and enriches himself at the expense of the others?

That is when we get into another part of what I do, probate and trust litigation. This is where there is a high price paid, both dollars and emotionally, for resolution of the hurt caused by the estate planning (or lack thereof).
