Experience In Removing Executors, Trustees And Administrators

When fiduciaries — executors, administrators or trustees — do not fulfill their obligations to the decedent, estate or trust, you may seek to have them removed. To accomplish this, you will need representation from an experienced probate litigation lawyer.

At the law office of Albert F. Pennisi, P.C., I represent family members and other beneficiaries who suspect fiduciaries of failing in their duties. I can also defend executors, administrators and trustees who have been petitioned for removal from the estate or trust. You can rely on my experience with probate litigation involving estates of all sizes. I have been practicing in estate, trust and probate law for more than 45 years.

You Can Remove Fiduciaries Who Mismanage Estates And Trusts

Fiduciaries must put their duty before their own interests. If you are seeking to remove a fiduciary from an estate or trust, I can petition the court on your behalf. I will request an accounting of the estate to determine how the assets have been spent or distributed as well as how many assets remain. If I determine that the estate or trust has been mismanaged, the case may go to trial.

Litigation can remove the fiduciary if he or she has been mishandling the estate or trust. Some of the most common reasons that people seek to remove fiduciaries include:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Disputes between fiduciaries and beneficiaries
  • Failure to provide information to the beneficiaries
  • Misappropriation of assets
  • Improper asset allocation
  • Disputes regarding compensation for executors/administrators, trustees or attorneys

This is not a complete list. Please speak with me about your specific case. I can explain your options and the process for removing an executor, administrator or trustee.
