Fiduciary Law

HandshakeThe word fiduciary means “a person to whom property or power is entrusted for the benefit of another.”  As a fiduciary, a person has a legal duty, obligation, and responsibility to manage another person’s property consistent with the applicable laws in the particular state.  If a fiduciary fails to do so, heirs, beneficiaries, creditors of an estate, or other interested parties can pursue legal actions against the fiduciary.  This is one reason why it is important that a fiduciary has experienced legal representation so that unnecessary mistakes and errors can be avoided.  If you have recently been appointed a personal representative and have questions or if you have served as a personal representative for a period of time and now have a proceeding filed against you, contact us today so that we can assist you.
