Matthew Thomas Staab

Case Conclusion Date:June 8, 2011

Practice Area:Trusts

Outcome:Per Curiam Affirmed (PCA)

Description:Case involved the removal/appointment of a Trustee by the trust beneficiaries. Former Trustee refused to deliver trust assets to Successor Trustee claiming that successor Trustee overstepped their authority in directing the manner and timing of the asset transfer. I was successful in representing the Successor Trustee at the Trial Court on a motion for summary judgment. The Former Trustee took appeal to Florida's 4th District Court of Appeal, and I was successful in getting the decision affirmed.
