Work-from-home legal research job

I am a litigating attorney and require research assistance for a case against Trustees of a New York Trust Fund. The balances in the Trust fund have dissipated by 70% due to excessive distributions of principal. The beneficiary is under disability and has children. Claims for breach of fiduciary duty, negligence and excessive distributions of principal may exist.

The candidate must have trusts and estates litigation experience

I need research assistance to develop claims under the EPTL as to excessive distributions of principal and under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (one of the potential defendats is also a FINRA registered broker/dealer). A problem exists in that the Trust document permits distribution of principal. The action would be brought in White Plains Westchester County Surrogates' Court.

I need cases and statutes demonstrating liability of Trustees under these circumstances, not memos of law. Later assignments will follow to draft complaint and other pleadings.

The work can be done at home and transmitted via computer.

Location: Westchester/Putnam
Compensation: $20 per hour
Telecommuting is ok.
