Wills & Trusts

Ensuring proper handling of your estate includes and understanding of wills and trusts. A will is a written document that gives directions of how a person's property is distributed after death. It can also include other instructions, such as nominating an individual to serve as a protected person's guardian or describing how assets should be probated. Trusts permit a third party to manage property on behalf of another individual, either during his or her lifetime or after death. Some of the benefits to trusts include the limitation of your tax liabilities, additional privacy afforded to the execution of your final wishes, minimizing the lengthy time and expenses associated with the probate process, providing extended fiduciary support for disabled relatives, and more.
