Asked in Communications Law for Florida

Q: My attorney and I (excutor) met and I received 3 checks for 3 TRUSTFUNDS is his fiduciary duties done?

I pointed out a mistake made on TF checks. I gave them back. The Attorney was going to make corrections. Told me to pick them up the following day this was a year ago. I still as of today received the TFs Monies. Once check were wrote did this end attorney's fiduciary duties?

He has now asked a probate attorney meet with me. Why if all is said and done?

A: Obviously the attorney's duties (as trustee, I assume) are not done, at least until the checks are properly written, accepted, and deposited. It looks like the attorney wants to meet with you about this, which also indicates that the matter is not over.
