What You Need To Know About Your Duties
Being the trustee of a trust or an executor of a will is an important role. After an individual passes, it is on your shoulders to see that his or her desires are carried out fully and that the beneficiaries are fully protected. It is critical to have an Orange County trust administration attorney in your corner to explain your duties to you and help to ensure that you follow procedures appropriately.
