Adult Guardianship/Censorship

Fiduciary Litigation

Managing money or assets for someone else, like an estate, makes you a fiduciary. Your role requires careful, loyal, and good-faith actions, steering clear of conflicts of interest. However, when a fiduciary neglects these responsibilities or has a conflicting interest leading to financial harm, they can be held accountable for the damages. If you find yourself harmed by a fiduciary or personal representative’s actions, Shuler Killen is here for you. With a wealth of experience, we specialize in representing individuals facing issues arising from fiduciary lapses or conflicts of interest. You can trust us to advocate for your rights and seek the resolution you deserve.
