Breach of Fiduciary Duty

Orlando Probate Litigation Attorney

When an executor of an estate is appointed and granted fiduciary duties, they are entrusted to responsibly carry out their duties in an honorable and professional manner. They are responsible for administering assets for the sole benefit of the beneficiary or beneficiaries. Failure to adequately adhere to their prescribed duties, according the the law, the executor may be personally held liable for their breach of fiduciary duty, and in some cases, may even be held criminally liable.

A breach of fiduciary duty exists when an individual or entity abuses, acts fraudulently, or fails to act within a due standard of care the authority and responsibility which has been given to them.
