Trustee and Executor Disputes


A common estate litigation conflict is when beneficiaries or estate stakeholders believe that the estate executor or trustee is not meeting the expectations of their role or breaching their fiduciary duty.

If a person has never been in the role of trustee or executor of an estate, they may not have the required knowledge or skills to meet their obligations or act in the best interest of the estate. Some cases may have a trustee or executor who abuses their authority and prioritizes their own interests.

What Happens if an Executor or Trustee is Not Fulfilling their Duties?

Several legal options are available to concerned parties where a trustee or executor is not fulfilling their responsibilities and obligations.

These include:

Before any action is taken by a beneficiary or other interested party, a consultation with an experienced estate lawyer is advisable. A lawyer will explain the options available, will help you formulate a game plan, and can represent you in any legal proceedings that may be necessary.
