How executor problems can lead to probate litigation

An executor could breach his or her fiduciary duty to the estate and its beneficiaries. A breach of this duty could occur if the executor carries out any of the following actions:

  • Making risky investments on in the name of the estate
  • Mixing the estate funds with personal funds
  • Not following the details of the will or the decedent’s other wishes
  • Using estate assets for personal gain
  • Withholding information from the estate’s beneficiaries
  • Paying him or herself an unreasonable amount for serving as executor

If a beneficiary or another person with legal standing believes that the executor of an estate has breached his or her fiduciary duty, that person could file a lawsuit against the executor. In order for a lawsuit to be successful, the person filing suit would need to prove that the estate suffered losses and the beneficiaries did not receive their rightful inheritances as a result.

How A Probate Litigation Attorney Can Help To Protect Your Interests

It is very helpful to have your own legal counsel to protect your interests and allow for a better exchange of information. The attorney representing the estate’s administrator cannot provide advice to beneficiaries due to a conflict of interest in the case – we will alleviate that issue by advocating for your best interests and getting the full scope of information necessary in your case. We will explain the probate process, evaluate your situation and explain what you are legally entitled to in the estate.
