Subtrust Allocation for Fiduciaries

More and more trust litigation in California concerns allegations of improper subtrust allocation. The goal of this class is to explain to California professional fiduciaries what subtrust allocation is, and how to avoid and/or work around subtrust allocation concerns in order to avoid fiduciary litigation and liability. I propose to collect and present this class with Judge Ana Maria Luna of Los Angeles County Superior Court. Judge Luna is an experienced trust/probate/conservatorship judge who is moving to manage the long cause trial calendar for the Los Angeles County Superior Court Probate Department across these disciplines.
