Issues with Trust Construction and Interpretation

When a trust is clearly constructed, its interpretation is rather simple and reformation is often unnecessary. Unfortunately, sometimes trust construction is questionable or raises issues among trustors, trustees, or other beneficiaries. Some problems involve the specific language of a trust, or a possible controversial interpretation of it. These issues can make administering or benefiting from a trust especially difficult, costing you time and money. However, the attorneys of Peck Ritchey, LLC, may be able to help Chicago trustors and trustees with complicated trust construction and interpretation issues.
