Plan For Your Family’s Future
Estate planning isn’t limited to writing a last will and testament to state who gets the furniture and who gets the house. Planning your estate is a way of addressing potential lifetime issues such as disability and structuring disposition of assets after death to address both tax and non-tax issues and contingencies.

Understanding Trusts And Whether They’re Right For You
A trust is a way of providing control of property by a trustee for the use and benefit of a beneficiary. A testamentary trust is a trust that is contained in a person’s will and goes into effect at the person’s death. The will names a trustee who will take control over certain assets and distribute them over time to the designated beneficiaries.
There are also trusts that go into effect during a person’s lifetime usually known as “living trusts” or “revocable trusts.” Revocable trusts are not for everyone. We talk with our clients about their options so that they can decide whether a trust fits their needs.
