Citations to Recover and Discover Assets in Chicago

When legal guardians are suspected of breaching the fiduciary duties they hold to their wards, citations of discovery may be issued in order to track down any assets that may have been misappropriated. If we help you determine that your loved one’s guardian has misappropriated assets, we can then help you pursue the necessary action to recover those assets.

If you need to obtain a citation to recover and discover assets, the Chicago guardianship litigation attorneys with Peck Ritchey, LLC, are prepared to help you take all the action you need to do just that. Our Chicago attorneys understand just how troubling all of this can be for both you and your family; we may do everything we can to help you recover your loved one’s assets.

Citations to Recover and Discover Assets from Guardians in Chicago

Without issuing a citation of discovery, there may not be any real means of determining exactly how much your loved one’s guardian may have misappropriated. Once our Chicago legal team has a citation to discover your loved one’s assets, the guardian must provide us with the information to track how those assets have been appropriated during his or her guardianship.

Once the extent of your loved one’s losses have been made clear to us, our Chicago legal team may be able to help you pursue any course of legal action that will be necessary to recover the assets that have been misappropriated.

I solicited Peck Ritchey, LLC for assistance with a living trust for which I became the beneficiary. I needed assistance with understanding the details of how it all worked. However, I was especially concerned because there were threats of allegations made by family members and a lawsuit was filed against me. I needed a solid professional who had my best interests in mind. Peter Brady took my case and he managed it flawlessly. He explained everything in a way I could understand, he knew the law inside and out, he was always available to answer questions, and even offer support when things seemed like they could become extremely problematic. In addition to this, he had a plan. He navigated the course as if he already knew the next move by the opposing attorney. He made me feel like everything was in control and that’s because he knew exactly what he was doing and he consulted with me about everything. We ended up settling out of court and ultimately the court officially dismissed the lawsuit. I honestly believe if it wasn’t for Peter and his expertise this could have gone in an entirely different direction. Peter did a stellar job and I couldn’t be more pleased and impressed with his performance.
