A person who has authority over an estate, whether he or she is a trustee or a representative, has a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the beneficiaries. This duty can be breached in a number of ways, including:
- Self dealing or using estate funds inappropriately
- Fraud, theft or embezzlement
- Mismanagement or poor investment choices
- Failing to distribute funds to beneficiaries in a timely manner
If you believe that a trustee or representative has breached his or her fiduciary duty or stolen money from the estate, we can help you. At the Law Offices of Scott Alan Morrison, P.A., we have extensive experience representing clients involved in all types of estate litigation, including cases involving a breach of fiduciary duty.

Helping You Investigate and Pursue a Breach of Fiduciary Duty Claim
Without the keen eye of experienced legal counsel, it can be difficult to know for sure that mismanagement or fraud has occurred. Whether it involves a trust, distribution under a will, a guardianship or a power of attorney, it is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible to help you determine if your suspicions have merit.
Our Maryland estate law attorneys will thoroughly investigate the situation. By carefully reviewing the estate and how the breach occurred, we can pursue the appropriate remedy. Our lawyers are skilled negotiators and litigators who will work to restore the estate and hold the trustee or executor accountable for his or her actions.
