How Can a Trust Help Me?

A trust can be thought of as a special kind of contract where someone agrees to oversee and manage certain assets for the benefit of someone else. The person who agrees to manage trust assets is called a “trustee.” A trustee has legal rights to use the trust assets as long as they do so for the benefit of the trust.

A trust is a useful estate planning tool that serves as an alternative to a will. Trusts have the benefit of having effect while you’re alive, unlike a will which only becomes effective upon a person’s death. An effective estate plan will use a revocable living trust naming you as trustee for life, as well as other “successor trustees.” When you pass away, your successor trustee will then have use and control over the trust assets.

Trust assets are not subject to probate because they are legally “owned” by the trust. As a result, using a trust will simplify probate administration issues by keeping certain assets out of your testamentary estate upon your death.

Our trust attorneys can provide you with advice and services for the following:

  • Trust formation
  • Trust administration
  • Marital trusts
  • Spendthrift trusts
  • Revocable living trusts
  • Irrevocable life insurance trusts
