Are You Dealing With a Resulting Trust?

If you are faced with a resulting trust because your trust's purpose has been frustrated or the trust was not created properly then hiring a skilled Elmira resulting trust lawyer is a good idea. He or she can explain your rights and legal options.

Legal Issues May Arise When Interpreting a Resulting Trust

Certain requirements must be met for a resulting trust to be valid. Since a resulting trust is only an implied trust, the court is in charge of determining whether the resulting trust is implied after the intended purpose of the trust has concluded.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

In general, how much an attorney costs will often depend on these four factors: billing method and pricing structure, type of legal work performed, law firm prestige, and attorney experience. Depending on the legal issue you are facing, an attorney may bill you by the hour, settle on a flat fee, or enter into a contingency fee agreement. The type of legal work you need help with will also play a role in cost incurred.
