Fiduciary Claims Attorney in Beaumont
Executors, trustees and probate administrators, also known as fiduciaries, and are held to a very high legal standard regarding their duties and obligations. Fiduciaries can be well-intentioned but not well prepared for their duties. Don’t be surprised and don’t wait until it is too late to get legal counsel.
A fiduciary is bound by law to act in the best interests of the beneficiaries. They must competently manage the estate business, with honesty and integrity. Fiduciaries cannot put their own interests before that of the beneficiaries. When fiduciaries fail to meet their obligations, executors, trustees, and administrators can be sued.

What is Fiduciary Litigation
Executors, administrators, trustees or someone’s power of attorney, are all fiduciaries. The primary responsibility of a fiduciary is to put their interests aside and act in the best interests of the beneficiary. Some fiduciaries make bad decisions that will damage the estate and its beneficiaries. These actions can result in a breach of fiduciary duty lawsuit.
Our lawyers have experience handling the following types of fiduciary claims:
- Failure to disclose information
- Failure to provide asset protection
- Mishandling of assets
- Denying beneficiary payments
- Failure to distribute funds
