Yes, the trustee of an estate can be held personally liable. A trustee is considered a fiduciary. If a trustee does not fulfill their fiduciary obligations, a beneficiary of the Trust could sue them for breach of fiduciary duty.
A probate attorney can guide a trustee through the steps they need to take to ensure they fulfill their fiduciary duties and are not held liable.
