Hart Kienle Pentecost Trust Litigation Victories Continue
Hart Kienle Pentecost partner, Andrew Kienle, recently prevailed in two separate probate litigation matters in Orange County Superior Court. In both cases, we represented the respondent, who was the trustee, in lawsuits brought to challenge the trustee’s actions in administering trust assets. In the first case, Andrew brought a rarely used motion for judgment in favor of the trustee at the conclusion of the petitioner’s case in chief. After considering the evidence presented by the petitioner, the Court granted the motion and entered judgment in favor of Hart Kienle Pentecost’s client on all claims. In the other case, after hearing all evidence presented by both sides, the Court found that there was no basis for any of the petitioner’s claims and denied the petition filed against Hart Kienle Pentecost’s client. Both clients were extremely pleased with Andrew’s expertise and the outcome of their respective cases before the probate court.
