WHAT WE’LL NEED TO EVALUATE YOUR CASE
Copy of Your Trust or Will
These documents give us important information essential to figuring out if you have a legal case to pursue. Without these documents, we are not able to evaluate your matter as much of the information we need is contained in these documents.
Trustee Notification Letter
The trustee notification determines how long you have to protect your rights, as there is a time limit based on when it was sent to you. Also, it identifies whom we need to contact and their location to respond on your behalf. It is a very important document.
Other Related Documents
Often there are notes, deeds to properties, amendments, bank statements, and other documents that clarify information we need to evaluate your case and the value of the estate. The more detail you can provide helps us get a full picture of your case.

kind words from our clients
“From the start through the settlement, the attorneys at Trust Law Partners impressed me, but the proof is in the results. I was dealing with a very stubborn party who firmly believed they had done nothing wrong and would stop at nothing to disinherit me from assets my parents had spent a lifetime building. The attorneys at TLP know the law intimately and were able to use the law to negotiate a settlement. As a result, I have closure on a painful chapter in my life.”Mark W.

Our attorney, Mark Russakow, was with us every step of the way navigating us through the process with confidence and a welcomed sense of humor. He makes you feel as if you are his only client, very available and accessible. Mark was able to successfully guide us to a settlement through mediation which benefitted all involved. I absolutely recommend them.”Jeanne
“Wayne Dong, I would give you 10 stars if that was an option! Wayne is knowledgeable, honest, compassionate and an amazing attorney and person to talk to. My case is complicated I am grieving and am being lied to by family involved I didn't understand or even know where to start as Executor. Wayne gave me excellent advice and pointed me in the right direction. Thank you Wayne!”Kristi F.
“Mark and Greg were there when I needed them the most. I was depressed, lost and defeated. They believed in me and could see that I was railroaded and took my case even though it was a very small amount. It wasn't just about the money, it was about justice. They put up with my emotional ups and downs and that is exactly what you need to get through something like this. They got me a settlement through mediation. A big thank you to the team.”Random Vintage Film
“I was referred to Trust Law Partners by a very reputable lawyer who thought a contingency firm was the best fit. Some firms were intimidated by my adversary. Mark and Greg believed in me. Mark and Greg fought and won each and every obstacle. They were amicable to a financial agreement that was a win-win. I would not hesitate to recommend this firm. They sort of saved me.”Lisa, Los Angeles
“Trust Law Partners helped me negotiate a difficult family estate dispute. Our attorney, Mark Russakow, was not only a top-notch lawyer, but was also a very kind, thoughtful person. Every step of the way Mark was there to advise on strategies to reach a just conclusion as well as listening and offering valuable advice to help me understand and come to terms with the situation.”Dave, Los Angeles
“When I went to Trust Law Partners, my grandfather had just passed and I was engulfed in a nasty probate battle with my uncles. Lisa made the probate process and litigation easy … and never made me feel like a burden. Lisa and her partner Mark were fantastic every step of the way. I’d highly recommend Trust Law Partners to any friend, family member, client or stranger on the street.”Natasha
“From start to finish, Mark and the team were thorough and professional. Their communication was great. We had lots of phone conversations and emails so I never felt like we were being sidelined. They were forthright about the odds of a settlement based on the will stipulations and basically made a MIRACLE happen for my dad and our family. I can’t thank them enough!”Jessica K.
