A large amount of attention has been placed on the importance of creating a living trust in an estate plan. Living trusts allow you to remain in control of your estate during your life while reducing the hassle of transferring ownership after your death. Living trusts can save you considerable amounts of money by avoiding the transfer of assets by probate. Equally as important is the implementation of the trust. Our attorneys will help you diminish the confusion of your children, spouse, and loved ones during probate by creating a solid estate plan.

There is an assortment of trusts that you can create to minimize administration, probate, and litigation costs. If properly prepared, trusts are an important tax-saving plan, transferring property either before or at the time of your death, thus avoiding estate tax. Here is a small sampling of some of the trusts we prepare:

  • Implementation of Trusts
