Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Certain people entrusted with handling money, such as executors, personal representatives, and trustees, have a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of beneficiaries. These fiduciaries are expected to act with honesty and integrity, but when they don’t live up to those high standards, beneficiaries can take legal action. When these actions prevail, the fiduciary can be removed from his or her position and held liable for damages.
At Chenoweth Law Group in Portland, we vigorously represent plaintiffs and defendants in litigation involving alleged misconduct on the part of fiduciaries. Experienced and determined, we provide aggressive representation designed to protect the assets and interests of our clients in all types of estate and trust litigation matters in Oregon, Washington, and California.
