Denton firm uses living trusts and other instruments to achieve clients’ goals

Our firm offers comprehensive estate planning counsel, including strong guidance on wills and probate matters. When deciding how to preserve and transfer their wealth, some people are confused by trusts or hesitant to ask about them, but we have the experience to assist you with each aspect of these instruments, such as:

  • Trust creation — We undertake a thorough review of clients’ goals and establish trusts to achieve them. In some instances, people wish to direct assets to help fund a loved one’s education or a charitable cause. Others are looking to reduce tax liability or prevent the hassle associated with probating an estate. Whatever you’re looking for, our attorneys can explain whether a trust can help.
  • Asset management — Whether or not our firm helped to establish a trust, we maintain the highest professional standards when administering trusts and providing counsel to trustees. Even if the terms are complex, our lawyers can ensure that the trust creator’s instructions are honored.
  • Living trust guidance — One popular estate planning tool is a living trust, which lets you have access to the assets you place into the trust for the rest of your life. When you pass away, the property is promptly transferred to your named beneficiaries without the hassle or delay associated with the probate process.

Understanding how a trust can help you preserve and allocate your assets can help you optimize your estate plan. In every situation, we’ll give you counsel suited to your specific situation.

Accomplished advisers handle disputes over terms and fiduciary duties

By law, the trustee has a fiduciary duty to carry out the terms of the trust. Frequently, these tasks are simple, but questions can arise as to whether a trustee is handling assets properly. Whether you’re responsible for administering the trust’s terms or are disputing actions that have been taken, we’ll analyze the situation and advise you of your legal options. From there, our firm can help you pursue appropriate relief through negotiation or litigation.
