Sound legal advice for trustees

Trust administration is a complex, confusing area of the law, one in which some attorneys lack the skill to practice. Our firm will not only draft trusts, but immediately help you fund the trusts with assets such as real property, stocks, bonds and other types of personal property. We will assist trustees to manage trust property throughout the life of the trust.

After the death of the first spouse, our firm will help you with the next phase of trust administration - dissolving the original trust and creating two or three trusts in which to transfer property. Determining whether to create an A, B or C trust, or a spousal, bypass or marital trust (commonly a QTIP trust) is complex, requiring the assistance of an attorney experienced in trust administration. Our firm - with the assistance of appraisers and tax consultants - will advise you about what trusts to create and what property to transfer into them. We will help you deal with any income tax or accounting issues that may arise related to these newly created trusts.

When the second spouse passes away, we will help the new trustee interpret trust documents, understand his or her duties as a trustee and ensure that the trust is managed and dissolved correctly. Our skills will guide you from creating the initial trust until dissolving the final trust.

Whether you are a beneficiary or a trustee, an experienced trust administration attorney can help you assert your rights and ensure that your financial interests are protected. Please Contact us today for an immediate consultation.
