Estate Planning Services
The living trust is the critical foundation of everyone’s estate plan. It is designed to make full use of the lifetime exemptions of both spouses by shifting ownership, but not control, of the assets so both spouses can enjoy the full use of all assets, and still leave the maximum amount they can for their desired beneficiaries.
Estate & Trust Administration
Our Estate & Trust Administration Team works with the successor trustees to create a customized agenda to ensure that the trustmakers’ legacy is carried out as it was set forth in the trust, regardless of whether the trust was drafted by the our firm.
A fiduciary ensures that the implementation and administration of your estate plan will be handled by a trust advisor that will keep the best interests of you and your beneficiaries in mind.
