Representation of Fiduciaries
A fiduciary is a person who has a legal relationship of trust with another, and has a strict legal duty to act in that person’s best interests. In Washington, a fiduciary may be a guardian, personal representative of an estate, trustee of a trust, or attorney in fact under a power of attorney.
Fiduciaries have many important responsibilities, which are often complex. If you have agreed to act in a fiduciary capacity, an experienced attorney can help you understand your role and responsibilities. Our firm regularly represents both professional (banks, trust companies, agencies) and individual fiduciaries. Please call a Mercer Island or Seattle attorney at our firm today to help you execute your duties with proper care.
