Living Trust and Wills Services
Revocable trusts, commonly called "living trusts," are an effective estate-planning tool for avoiding the costs and hassles of probate, preserving privacy and preparing your estate for ease of transition after you die. ... Unlike in a will, assets in a living trust will generally pass to heirs sooner.
Whether you have a large or modest estate, estate planning allows you to control how your assets will be transmitted to your loved ones. We help you control the distribution of your estate, save money and provide for your family and heirs.
When estate planning is done properly, there is no probate. However, the fact is that many people never quite get around to doing their estate planning before something happens. We also handle probate in those situations where probate cannot be avoided.
Settling a living trust is usually very easy and attorney involvement can be minimal. However, there are some formalities involved that may be better handled by an attorney. We are available to assist where needed in settling or the administration of trusts.
The Durable Power of Attorney would allow someone to act on your behalf regarding your affairs if you are incapacitated. This can be very important for people who travel extensively or if you have not transferred assets to a trust.
A Health Care Directive is very important for anyone who wants to specify the terms of their health care in the event they cannot give the instructions themselves. You can specify limits on health treatment and determine who can make decisions on your behalf when you are incapacitated. With this you can instruct your physician not to use life support under certain conditions.
