Park Ridge Fiduciary Claims Lawyers

A breach of fiduciary duty arises when an interested party believes that a representative appointed to handle the affairs of someone else or an estate is putting his or her own interests above the best interest of the estate or person he or she is supposed to be acting on behalf of. Claims of fiduciary misconduct can often result in investigations by the court or by a private firm hired by the parties who believe wrongdoing is occurring. Evidence supporting this finding can result in the representative being removed from power, and in certain situations, civil action can be taken to recover funds or prosecute for fraud.

If you are facing an accusation, our Chicago breach of fiduciary lawyers can help represent and defend your actions. If you are accused of not providing timely updates, we can help you comply with requests and help provide information concerning the decisions you have made as part of your role. We will vigorously defend your position and right to remain as the named actor.

For those who wish to pursue a breach of fiduciary duty claim, if you are a beneficiary, creditor or other interested party, we can help you make your application to the courts and help you try to uncover evidence to support your argument. Whether you are unclear about the contents of a document that is being withheld from you, you believe you are entitled to financial information that is not being disclosed or you have questions about how fit the named agent is, our attorneys will fervently work to get you the answers you need.

No matter which side you are on, we encourage you to contact a probate attorney at John J. Pembroke & Associates, LLC to schedule a consultation.
