Claims Against Fiduciaries in Seattle

Resolving Claims Against Fiduciaries

At Ridgway Law Group, P.S., our focus on trust and estate litigation means that our lawyers are frequently asked to review, prosecute or defend the performance of fiduciaries, or those who are legally bound to act in the best interests of others with respect to a particular commitment such as administering an estate or executing a will.

We represent people on either side of a fiduciary dispute: heirs, beneficiaries, wards, personal representatives, trustees, guardians and attorneys-in-fact. Sometimes we are even asked to resolve problems between fiduciaries, such as when the executor of an estate has questions about transfers made on behalf of the decedent by someone acting under a power of attorney.

Our principal attorney Sheila Ridgway is ready to help you figure out whether you have legal remedies if you are dissatisfied with the performance of a personal representative or trustee. We also represent individual and institutional fiduciaries against allegations of dishonesty or neglect in the discharge of their responsibilities.

Examples of the kinds of cases we can handle include:

  • Complaints about the performance of the executor or administrator of a decedent's estate
  • Questions about actions taken by persons acting under a medical or financial power of attorney
  • Allegations of financial exploitation by a person in a position of trust over a vulnerable person
  • Actions for an accounting by a trustee or other fiduciary
  • Actions for the removal of a personal representative, trustee, guardian or attorney in fact

Our attorneys are familiar with cases involving dishonest or negligent performance on the part of a fiduciary, and we know what steps to take in order to prove a claim of breach of fiduciary duty.

Call us at (206) 855-6420, contact us online, or visit our Seattle office for attentive client service that aims for a prompt resolution of your legal problem.
