Estate Law Attorneys Offering An Array Of Fiduciary Services
One aspect of estate planning involves the appointment of individuals to serve in important roles, including executor, guardian or conservator (of an incapacitated adult) and trustee. In most cases, someone planning their estate would choose a person they already know and trust to fulfill one or more of these important duties. This can be problematic for individuals who don’t know anyone able or willing to do so.
Thankfully, there is a solution. The experienced estate planning attorneys at Brink Bennett Pargaman Atkins & Sanchez PLLC can also serve as fiduciaries. Our knowledge of estate law and our reputation for exceptional client service makes us an easy choice for trusted fiduciary representation in Austin and surrounding areas of Texas.
What Is A Fiduciary?
A person, company or organization serving in a fiduciary role has the responsibility and authority to make important decisions on behalf of someone related to their personal care, health or the management of assets. A fiduciary can either be appointed by the person they will be caring for (typically through estate planning documents) or appointed/approved by a court (such as in many guardianship and conservatorship cases).
Serving as a fiduciary comes with many personal and legal responsibilities. As such, many fiduciaries who are not attorneys choose to work with an attorney to ensure that they are properly fulfilling their duties and complying with the law. For this reason, hiring an attorney to serve as a fiduciary is a practical choice.
