Attorneys for Breach of Fiduciary Duty Issues

A fiduciary is an individual in a position of trust. This fiduciary has a duty to look out for the best interests of the individual or estate he or she represents.

With a trust, the trustee is the fiduciary. When there is a will or probate, the personal representative is the fiduciary. Likewise, guardians, conservators, individuals with the power of attorney and those in similar positions of authority are fiduciaries.

When a fiduciary breaches his or her duty of loyalty, honesty and fair dealing, he or she can be held accountable through a breach of fiduciary duty action. These types of cases can be complex and emotional, especially when the parties involved are related.
