We Hold Bad-Acting or Negligent Fiduciaries Responsible
A fiduciary is someone that accepts the role of protecting the assets of another individual and acquires fiduciary duties toward that individual. Fiduciaries are held to the highest standard of behavior in civil law to act in the best interests of the principal and with utmost honesty and integrity in the exercise of powers and accomplishment of duties.
Trustees, guardians, executors, and persons acting under a power of attorney hold a formal fiduciary relationship with their principal. This means fiduciary duties cannot be denied. An informal fiduciary relationship can be established by the course of dealing and the reliance of a weaker or less sophisticated person, mentally or physically, upon another that is stronger and more sophisticated.
What Happens When a Fiduciary Abuses Their Position?
When a fiduciary abuses the position of trust, it should not be tolerated. A fiduciary is trusted to protect you and your assets. If a fiduciary abuses that position, there should be accountability and they should be punished and pay damages, depending on the circumstances. Our Dallas law firm can help you with lawsuits for and alleging:
- Undue influence
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Theft of fiduciary property
- Removal of powers of attorney
