Our team of experienced trust attorneys and disability planners work with you to determine what your unique goals are and ensure that they are incorporated into your plan according to your wishes.
A TRUST is a legal entity you can create for the benefit of yourself and/or others that holds, manages and distributed assets you put into it. Your written directions, the terms of the trust and state law determine how the assets are managed and distributed.
It means that a trust is an extremely flexible estate planning tool. There are many different kinds of trusts which can be used to accomplish an amazing array of goals from tax planning, to disability planning, to legacy building, to asset protection.
Many of our clients, if they are interested in a trust when they first approach us, are thinking of a revocable living trust. A revocable living trust set up by a qualified trust attorney is a very flexible estate planning strategy which can provide uninterrupted asset management and protection during any incapacity and serves, in many ways, as a substitute for a will. This type of trust allows you to accomplish your goals with little or no court intervention and to do so in a private manner without sharing the details of your estate in public through conservatorship or through probate.
