Our attorneys advise all manner of fiduciaries as they carry out their duties while acting on behalf of others.
For trustees, this means investing, managing, and distributing assets according to instructions established by the trust’s creator and by Texas law.
Executors must gather estate assets, paying claims against the pay, and distribute the estate in accordance with the will and with Texas law.
Guardians’ duties are governed by Texas law and instructions provided by the court.
To act in any fiduciary capacity, you must act prudently and loyally, protect the assets for which you are responsible, treat beneficiaries impartially.
If you have been asked to serve as a trustee, executor, administrator, attorney-in-fact, agent, or any other fiduciary capacity, get the legal facts about your rights and responsibilities.
