Obtained a Complete Victory in a Jury Trial after a Trustee was Sued for Mismanagement of a Family Trust
SmithAmundsen represents litigants in trust disputes. In one instance, we obtained a complete victory in a jury trial in St. Louis County Circuit Court after a trustee was sued for mismanagement of a family trust. The plaintiff sought to recover $500,000 in actual damages, plus punitive damages and attorney’s fees. The jury found for our client, awarding the plaintiff nothing, and our client was subsequently able to recover his attorney’s fees incurred in defending the litigation.
