Mismanagement of Trusts/Investment Accounts

Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale Trust Mismanagement AttorneyRepresenting Beneficiaries Throughout Florida in Trust Mismanagement Disputes

Many of these cases are governed by Florida's Prudent Investor Rule. In short, the rule states that trustees or other fiduciaries must manage the accounts in a way that "a prudent investor" would manage his or her own money. The critical issue is the conduct of the trustee rather than the actual performance of the portfolio. As long as the strategy was sound, it can be found to be prudent even if it was not successful.

It is important that you have an attorney who knows the Prudent Investor Rule and how Trustees mismanage trusts and with the experience necessary to protect your interests. The Law Offices of Robert Wayne Pearce, P.A., with its principal office located in Boca Raton, Florida has successfully represented beneficiaries for many years in these cases.

Aggressive Attorneys Who Recover Losses in Mismanaged Investment Accounts in Miami and Nationwide

A trustee or other fiduciary has a responsibility under the law to manage trusts and other investment accounts in a prudent fashion that is consistent with the accounts' stated goals and terms. Mismanagement of these types of accounts can result in significant financial losses for the beneficiaries and can lead to complex legal disputes.

In some cases, the trustee is a financial professional who makes the investment decisions personally. In others, he or she is essentially an administrator who hires a qualified professional to manage the accounts. Attorney Pearce will thoroughly review your case to determine if there were mistakes made and who was responsible and seek recovery of the losses you have suffered as a beneficiary.

Client Reviews
Robert Pearce is part of that unusual breed of lawyers that are able to create empathy with clients and thoroughly adopt their cause. No half efforts here. He and his group of professionals are outstanding strategists that can execute with precise fervor and unyielding determination. Theirs is a huge wave of facts, research, precedents and preparation, that has impressed me in its thoroughness and creativity, and most importantly with the results. No stone goes unturned and no effort is ever spared. In my book, he and they are those of a very rare kind that one wants to keep for a very long time. Ramon F.
This law firm is the real deal. We were so lucky that they took our case as they have so much experience in securities and all the wrongdoing that happens in these investment companies where they mislead you and your money (as in our case) into schemes that are not what you think they are. Mr. Robert Pearce is one of the best lawyers around, a truly professional who will fight for you and will tell you as it is all the time. Astrid M.
Mr. Pearce is a great professional and attorney. He led me through every step of the process in a clear, direct and straightforward manner. I highly recommend him as a securities attorney. Rey S.
Just like the song from HAMILTON, it's so nice to have Bob Pearce on your side. He is the consumate plaintiff's lawyer: smart. dedicated, fully able to try a case but a great negotiator in a mediation. He did a wonderful job for us, fully supporting us through the process and more than holding his own against a large national law firm. Maurice Z.
No lawyer except Bob said I had a chance of winning. When Ubs lawyers laughingly offered me zero to settle the dispute, Bob became even more determined to prove everybody wrong. Bob was extremely prepared, and always a step ahead of the opposing attorneys throughout the arbitration. In the end, Bob and I had the last laugh when the arbitrators awarded me almost 6 million dollars. J. Blanco
