Estate Planning Lawyer
Protecting Your Investments
Estate planning is an area of law that requires the careful drafting of
documents and preparation of asset distribution for after your death.
A comprehensive estate plan can include wills, trusts, and other tools
for protecting and bequeathing assets. Our
asset protection lawyers have the experience to help you through this complex legal process and
effectively prepare for the future.
Wills and Trusts
In many circumstances, estate planning involves preparing a legal document
called a will that explains what you want to happen with your assets after
you pass away. Will and trusts both enable a person to provide clear instructions
for how assets should be handled after a person is deceased and certain
trusts can also provide some tax advantages to beneficiaries. A living
trust is similar to a will in that it documents the manner in which you
would like your affairs sorted after your passing. If you create a trust,
you appoint a trustee to oversee the administration of your assets. A
trust is placed into the hands of the trustee before their death, and
the administration can take place while the individual is still living.
