Executors, personal representatives and trustees are legally obligated to act in the interest of all beneficiaries. When the designated person fails to exercise due care and diligence in executing his or her duties, it is considered a breach of fiduciary duty.
If you believe the person responsible for managing your loved one's estate is not fulfilling his or her duties or is committing estate fraud, seek legal counsel. If you are the one being accused of fiduciary misconduct, we can also represent you. We can provide the information necessary for the opposing side to understand the true circumstances and to help shield you from personal liability.
