A fiduciary is a person or entity that has a duty to act in someone else’s best interest. For example, a fiduciary may be an estate executor who is obligated to make decisions on behalf of an estate beneficiary. Fiduciaries are prohibited from making decisions or acting for their own self-gain. If you believe that a fiduciary has acted unlawfully in the course of estate administration, Attorney Mandy Rogers can fight to hold them accountable.
Our firm can also advise fiduciaries to ensure that they meet their obligations and remain compliant with their fiduciary duties. We understand that the line between personal gain and the beneficiary’s best interest can be unclear.
