A Superior Approach to Drafting Wills
You probably know that a will ensures that your wishes are carried out regarding the distribution of your property after death. But a will does many other things as well. A will lets your family know who you to want to handle your affairs, and how you want them to do so when you are gone. A will is used to name a guardian for your minor children in the event of your death.
At our law firm, we draft wills and create other estate documents for people from all walks of life. We tailor each will to meet the specific needs of each client. A will forms the basic building blocks of an estate plan. Even people of modest means have the need for a will and other estate documents. Our firm treats every client as a unique person with unique needs.
In creating your will and other estate documents, we take time to learn about your life, your family and your values. We discuss your goals and what you want to achieve at certain times in your life. Then we create those documents and legal vehicles which can help you achieve those goals. To schedule a consultation about a will or other estate matter, contact our firm.
Carrying Out a Formed Trust
Once a trust has been legally formed, it must be funded and administered. The trustee or trustees of the trust have a fiduciary responsibility to properly manage its investments, operation, and disbursements. There are also tax-reporting obligations. As an experienced trust administration lawyer, we provide a full range of services to trustees designed to help them carry out their fiduciary duties and legal obligations.
