A trust is essential to ensure property owners that they determine how their assets are distributed upon their death, while protecting their heirs from having to endure a costly and sometimes trying probate of their estate.
There are numerous reasons for trust creation, including minimizing taxes, asset protection, and providing beneficiaries with the ability and freedom to pursue their goals.
At The Crosthwait Law Firm, our experienced estate planning attorneys will discuss in great detail with you regarding your intentions and objectives, including standards of distribution, “incentive” provisions, special needs beneficiaries, and limiting the impact of negative forces. We will assist you in designing and organizing a trust that aligns the interests of all parties in a manner that will survive the long term.
In addition, we are experienced in modifying and amending existing trusts so that they accurately reflect your current estate planning goals and objectives.
