Dallas Trust Litigation Attorneys

Texas Trust and Estate Litigation Lawyers

Trusts are a useful estate vehicle designed to protect assets and preserve wealth. The trustee of a trust has a fiduciary duty to the trust's beneficiaries. These fiduciary duties generally include a duty to invest and manage the assets prudently, a duty of impartiality, a duty of loyalty, a duty to refrain from self-dealing, and other important duties.

Many trust disputes arise when one family member, often a son or daughter, is named the trustee of the family trust. When the trustee engages in self-dealing, fraud or otherwise mismanages the trust, he or she is in violation of his or her fiduciary duties. For instance, a trustee should not sell trust assets to his or her own business for less than fair market value. Other types of trust litigation could involve accounting issues, the validity of a trust, or other types of mismanagement.

Whatever your situation entails, if you are about to engage in trust litigation, it is critical to work with experienced attorneys. The Dallas law firm of Fisher & Welch serves clients throughout Texas and beyond in trust litigation.
