Breach of Fiduciary Duty

If you have ever been in a relationship with someone in which you placed great trust, and that individual then abused that trust causing you economic harm, you very well may have a claim against them for breach of fiduciary duty.

The classic examples of a fiduciary relationship include your attorney, the trustee of your trusts, or the executor or administrator of your estate or the estate of a family member. But a person does not need to have such a title to have the courts determine that they are in a fiduciary relationship. The facts surrounding your relationship with someone, in whom you placed great trust and confidence, can be enough to create a fiduciary relationship between you and them.

The attorneys at Schwartz Law know and understand all of the contours concerning how a fiduciary relationship is created and what rights are available to someone who has been harmed by a fiduciary. And we know what to do about it to help you.   Contact us and we will help you navigate through the situation.
