Trustee Duties In Arizona
Legally prescribed fiduciary duties and potential personal liability if you do not fulfill these duties come along with the trustee role. For that reason, as a trustee, you are going to want to know that your actions comply with the applicable laws. Unfortunately, those laws are not always intuitive.
To help you discharge your duties properly, our attorneys will work with you one-on-one. Our personalized approach enables you to identify and perform all of your duties, including collecting and accounting for trust assets, and ultimately distributing the trust’s property to beneficiaries in a timely, accurate and cost-effective manner.
