When a court finds that a trustee has breached his or her fiduciary duty, a judge may surcharge a trustee of his or her share. Alternatively, the judge might limit or refuse compensation to a nonbeneficiary trustee. This possible outcome can help restore justice and replace losses that the beneficiaries would have otherwise incurred over time.
Beneficiaries can recover these damages if a trustee acted in a way that was not in the best interests of the trust. Damages can also include interest. Our attorneys use a thorough approach to ensure that beneficiaries receive the maximum damages possible.
