Experienced, Trustworthy Representation
A fiduciary duty is a legal duty to act solely in another party’s interests. Trustees, guardians and personal representatives of estates are fiduciaries who have the duty to manage large sums of money or an individual’s welfare in a manner that provides for the beneficiaries’ best interests. In fulfilling this duty, these fiduciaries must put their own interests aside and behave with a high level of honesty and integrity.
Unfortunately, fiduciaries do not always live up to their responsibilities. Fiduciaries have been known to make poor decisions, squander investment opportunities and misappropriate beneficiaries’ money for their own benefit.
