Breach of Fiduciary Duty

Breach of Fiduciary Duty in Los Angeles

What to Do When There's A Breach of Fiduciary Duty

When a person accepts the designation of executor or trustee of a trust or will, that person is obligated to act for the benefit and interests of the beneficiaries, as dictated in the trust or will.

To fail to do what is required correctly could be a breach of fiduciary duty, which could be one of the following:

  • Inexperience
  • Lack of knowledge
  • Conflicts of Interests
  • Actual criminal activity
Engaging the services of a Los Angeles trust litigation lawyer could be crucial to restoring stability and confidence during a time that is often wrought with strong emotions. Our lawyers at the Law Offices of David A. Shapiro, P.C. have extensive experience in trust litigation.

Protecting Your Reputation & Finances

You may be a beneficiary who suspects the executor or trustee is not acting correctly in that position, or you may be an executor accused of acting improperly. Our firm can review your situation and advise you about what could be done to bring the matter to a resolution.

  • Not keeping an accurate record of financial transactions

  • Not following the terms of the trust
  • Ignoring the best interests of the beneficiaries while pursuing self-interests
