Skilled Legal Counsel in Disputes Over Performance of Fiduciary Duties
Many of the relationships that fall under probate court jurisdiction are fiduciary in nature. In other words, one person owes someone else a duty of integrity, diligence and competence and must put the interests of the other person first.
Trustees owe fiduciary duties to beneficiaries, guardians owe them to wards, and personal representatives owe them to both heirs and the estate itself. If you have reason to question the performance of a fiduciary in trust, probate or estate administration, please contact me now to learn all your options. I also advise fiduciaries of all kinds who are concerned about the potential for liability to a beneficiary or other interested party.
