A personal representative or Trustee may employ persons, including, but not limited to, attorneys, accountants, auditors, appraisers, investment advisers, and others (“expert”) to advise or assist the PR or Trustee in the performance of administrative duties and act upon the recommendations of those employed persons without independent investigation. If the PR or Trustee acted reasonably and prudently in employing and taking the advice of the expert, then he may not be held liable for the expert’s advice or conduct that causes damages to the estate or Trust.  For a more detailed discussion on this topic, refer to my Web Site at Gartenlaw.com.
