Trustee is the term used for a person placed in charge of a trust. This person has a variety of duties to perform. The role can be complicated and challenging.
The Ohio Trust Code outlines how trustees throughout the state are required to fulfill their obligations. Our Cleveland trust attorneys understand the Code and how the courts interpret it. We can work with trustees to prevent violations and we can represent beneficiaries who feel that a trustee has violated the law.
