Living Trusts

San Joes Estate LawyerYou have significant assets.  In the event of your death, you do not want a probate court taking over the supervision of your assets.  While you are alive, you want to remain in control of your assets.

We know that one of the most important things you can do for your family is to establish a living trust.  By establishing a living trust, our attorneys can:

  • Protect your family from losing your assets to probate taxes and legal fees
  • Provide your family with the peace of mind to carry out your directives
  • Ensure that distributions can be made by your Trustee to your named beneficiaries without any involvement from the courts
  • Ensure that your assets remain out of the public record even after your death

The big advantage to making a living trust is that property left through the trust doesn’t have to detour through a probate court before it reaches the people you want to inherit it.  You can amend or revoke your living trust at any time while you are still competent.  The trust only controls those assets you give it.

Let us show you and your loved ones how a living trust can be used to incorporate further planning which can save you thousands of dollars in estate taxes.
