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 Liverpool 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.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • 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.

Types of legal fees:

Bill by the hour: Many attorneys bill by the hour. How much an attorney bills you per hour will vary based on a number of factors. For instance, an attorney's hourly fee may fluctuate based on whether that hour is spent representing you in court or doing research on your case. Attorneys in one practice area may bill you more than attorneys in a different practice area.

Contingent fee: Some lawyers will accept payment via contingent fee. In this arrangement, the lawyer receives a percentage of the total monetary recovery if you win your lawsuit. In sum, the lawyer only gets paid if you win. Contingent fee agreements are limited to specific practice areas in civil law.

Flat fee: For "routine" legal work where the attorney generally knows the amount of time and resources necessary to complete the task, he/she may be willing to bill you a flat fee for services performed.
