Wills and Trusts Explained

It is advisable to enlist the help of effective counsel when you wish to legally name a person who will be entrusted to manage your belongings or estate upon your death. This important decision will demonstrate your wishes after your passing.

A trust — often called a living trust or will — creates a relationship between two parties when a specific property is held by one person/part and another. They are created when settlers wish to transfer property to a trustee, who will hold that property for the trust’s recipients. Together, they are used to control what happens to your estate or belongings upon your death or extended separation.
