Placing Trust in the right hands
We all need a plan. Take an active role of how your assets are managed and distributed. Don’t leave your legacy to the court system.
What is a Living Trust ?
With a Living Trust, Probate’s cost, stress, and time are avoided and
your estate is distributed quickly and privately according to your wishes.
Why You Need a Living Trust
Control Your Estate
Your most valuable assets are your home and investment property. You can ensure a private and timely transfer to your family or partners with a Living Trust. You can also determine at what age your beneficiaries inherit.
Avoid Probate Court
Your family should control your estate – not the court system. A Will and Probate can tie up your estate for years and cost your family thousands of dollars and prolonged suffering. You deserve better.
Protect Your Family
With a Living Trust, you can provide asset protection for your children or other beneficiaries, especially if they have creditors, a pending divorce, a lawsuit, or a disability. You can also name guardians for your minor children.

Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between a Will and a Living Trust?
A Will must be filed in Probate Court and states your wishes for the distribution of your estate at your death. If you do not have a Will, the court controls distribution.
A Living Trust is private and establishes complete control and protection of your estate now and after your death. Learn more
Why should Probate be avoided?
Probate is costly, it takes a long time, and because of the number of cases in the system, it is inefficient and burdens families.
Probate requires a minimum six-month claims period. The entire process can tie up your estate for an average of 18 months or more and cost thousands of dollars. Learn more
Does a Living Trust avoid Probate?
