Trustee Misconduct & Fraud Claims
We represent beneficiaries in various types of trustee fraud and misconduct
claims, including but not to:
Are you the beneficiary of a
trust that was established during your loved one's lifetime? As a beneficiary,
you have to rely on the discretion, judgment and conduct of the trustee
or trustees to take proper care of the trust assets and principal of the
trust, and to ensure that you receive the
appropriate distributions as outlined in the trust document.
Due to the fact that trustees have a significant amount of power and control
over trust assets for the benefit of the beneficiaries, the law imposes
what is called a fiduciary duty upon the trustee towards you, the beneficiary.
While many trustees are honorable, unfortunately, there are some that
fail to have the beneficiaries' best interests at heart. Trustee fraud
or misconduct can misappropriate or squander trust assets or principal
and severely diminish a beneficiary's trust income or principal.

At the Law Offices of David A. Shapiro, P.C., many clients who were beneficiaries
approached us because they felt something wasn't right, or were alarmed
when the income or principle from their trust had substantially diminished.
If you are experiencing this yourself, you don't have to accept your
trustee's explanation for what is going on. We will take a look at
your situation, advise you of your rights and let you know if you have
a case or not. Don't just sit in the dark not knowing what's happening
behind the scenes; the longer you wait the more damage that will occur,
some of which may be irreversible.
