Trustees, executors and administrators all have a duty to exercise good faith in their dealings. This is known as a fiduciary duty. A fiduciary duty is known as the highest standard under law. Failing to properly manage a trust or an estate, whether negligently or intentionally, is known as a breach of fiduciary duty. A breach of fiduciary duty can have devastating financial consequences. If you are a beneficiary who believes the trustee breached his or her fiduciary duty, or if you are a trustee accused of such acts, you must have a skilled lawyer on your side.

Consider the Black Law Firm. Based in Houston, we represent clients across Southeast Texas and beyond in the full range of fiduciary litigation. Our attorney Ray J. Black Jr. has successfully litigated many claims on behalf of both beneficiaries and trustees, executors and administrators.
