Faulkner v. Woodruff

Faulkner v. Woodruff, 159 So.3d 319 (Fla. 2d DCA 2015), 2015 WL 968723

In this fee dispute, the Court held that Section 733.6175, which provides the circuit court with the authority to determine the reasonableness of compensation paid to personal representative or any person employed by the personal representative, does not require the personal representative to interplead himself as a respondent in an action to review fees.  The personal representative, like a beneficiary of an estate, has the right to have the court review the fees, and the party seeking to be paid has the burden of proof to establish that their fees were reasonable.
