Trustees, personal representatives and other fiduciaries have a considerable amount of legal and financial responsibilities when it comes to settling the estate. The trust administration and probate processes are complex, making it easy for inexperienced fiduciaries to misstep. A lawyer can provide the advice and counsel you need to avoid these pitfalls.

These days, family members and other nonprofessionals are being appointed trustees and personal representatives. This does not mean, however, that they aren't held to the same legal standards. Not understanding your fiduciary duties or knowing the law does not free you from personal, financial or criminal liability. Luckily, you are entitled to have legal representation, paid through the estate, to ensure you are able to properly fulfill your fiduciary duties.
