Addressing Breach Of Fiduciary Duty

A fiduciary is someone who acts on behalf of another person. When it comes to estate and trust administration, it is the responsibility of a fiduciary to administer the estate or trust in accordance with the rules specified by the person they are representing. Failing to comply with these rules can result in major legal and emotional challenges for beneficiaries and heirs. Whether you are accused of breaching fiduciary duty or suspect someone has breached their duty, defend your needs with swift legal guidance.

We are fluent in the challenges of California trust and estate law, and know how to hold fiduciaries to their responsibilities, as well as defend them when they are compliant with their responsibilities.

Defending Your Rights And Interests

A breach of fiduciary duty can happen when someone who was tasked with the care of an estate or trust begins acting in their own interests, or against the interests of the trust, will or beneficiaries. Examples of these breaches can include mismanaging assets, self-dealing and failing to provide vital information to essential parties.
