Dispute Mediated for Trust Beneficiary

The problem. A homeowner, trust beneficiary and sister allowed her contractor brother — who was also the trustee — to completely remodel her house. The contractor/brother trustee failed to pay a subcontractor who then filed a mechanic's lien on the house. The contractor brother also filed a lien.

The solution. Dave successfully represented the homeowner who brought a cause of action for breach of fiduciary duty against the trustee/brother and ultimately resolved the matter in mediation.
