Pozzuolo Rodden, PC, Philadelphia Estate Planning Attorneys, Released the Question of the Month in The September 2013 Newsletter Relating to Corporate Trustees
Date:9/20/2013

(PRWEB) September 20, 2013

Pozzuolo Rodden P.C., Philadelphia Estate Planning Lawyers, announces the question of the month: "How can a beneficiary remove a corporate trustee in favor of a different trustee if the beneficiary is not satisfied with the current corporate trustee’s services"?

Section 7766 of the Pennsylvania Probate, Estates and Fiduciaries Code permits removal of a trustee.

Super. 123 (Pa.
