Texas Trust Fraud Lawsuits, Texas Trustee Mismanagement Lawsuits, & Texas Trustee Breach of Fiduciary Duty Lawsuits

Trustees have a duty under Texas probate law and most trusts to properly manage and distribute a trust and can be held responsible for fraud and mismanagement of trust assets.  Trustees that fraudulently mismanage or steal trust assets can have a breach of fiduciary duty lawsuit filed against them to reclaim any money or other assets that were mismanaged or stolen.  Trustees that commit fraud, steal, or negligently lose or destroy assets in a trust can be held responsible under Texas law for wrongful acts.

Texas Guardian Fraud Lawsuits, Texas Negligent Guardian Lawsuits, & Texas Breach of Fiduciary Duty Lawsuits

Under Texas law, an guardian of an estate has a duty to make accurate accountings of the money that they spend for a wards benefit.  Failure to provide mandatory guardian accountings can lead to legal trouble for any guardian as well as lead to a breach of fiduciary duty lawsuit against the guardian.  Further, failing to spend a ward's money for the benefit of a ward, losing money through risky investments, or unapproved sales of the ward's property can also lead to legal trouble for the guardian as well as a potential lawsuit against the guardian.

In determining if a guardian is doing their job, Texas courts look at the original accounting, all annual accountings, and the final accounting including all supporting financial documents.  Guardians have a duty to make these accountings and can suffer serious liability if they do not.

Guardians that commit fraud or negligently lose or destroy assets in an estate can be held responsible under Texas law for wrongful acts.  If you are a beneficiary or heir of an estate or a person that has recently become competent to handle your own estate and a guardian has negligently lost or intentionally stolen estate property, it is important to hire a Texas Negligent or Fraudulent Guardian Lawyer that can help seek compensation for theft or negligence by a guardian.
