Serving Clients Throughout Georgia, Nationwide And Abroad
In many situations, banks, investment professionals, trustees and others are considered fiduciaries, which means they are legally required to act in their clients’ or beneficiaries’ best interests. Similarly, estate executors or personal representatives of estates are charged with acting solely in the best interests of the estate and its beneficiaries.
When they fail to do so, the people who rely upon them can suffer significant financial loss — yet false allegations can also be costly and damaging to the fiduciary.
At Kaufman & Forman, P.C., we represent people who have been harmed due to breach of fiduciary duty as well as those accused of such a breach. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing plaintiffs and defendants in these cases.
Contact us today online or by telephone at 770-390-9200 to arrange a consultation with one of our experienced attorney about any breach of fiduciary duty.
