When a family member or someone else in a fiduciary role commits wrongdoing, it is tremendously unfair to the beneficiaries of an estate or trust. Yet far too often, executors and trustees abuse their power, engage in self-dealing or commit outright theft.
At Keystone Law Group, we are committed to confronting such conduct and helping beneficiaries assert their rightful interests. To help you understand your options, we recently published a white paper called When Executors and Trustees Go Wrong.
In it, you will learn:
- How estate administration and trusts are used to transfer property to beneficiaries
- What duties executors and trustees are obligated to perform in this process
- What factors to keep in mind when choosing an executor or trustee
- When it makes sense to use a professional fiduciary rather than a friend or family member
- How family dynamics can be a cause of conflict in the administration of estates or trusts
- What types of wrongdoing are commonly committed by trustees and executors
- What legal challenges can be made to such wrongdoing
To become better informed about how to avoid or resolve problems with fiduciaries, we encourage you to download our white paper free of charge.
