You may have heard that everyone needs a will. While it is certainly true that a will is a necessity for many people, everyone has different needs when it comes to estate planning. At The Gufford Law Firm, P.A., our attorneys can help you determine which estate planning tools best serve your family's financial needs.
When you meet with our lawyers, we will conduct a thorough interview to determine the nature of your financial situation, family relationships and assets. The information that we uncover in the process will help us determine whether a will, trust or combination of both best meets your needs.
Avoid The Expense Of Probate With A Trust
Trusts are a powerful asset protection tool. With a trust, you can avoid probate for your heirs and, thus, preserve more of the value of your estate. Lastly, a trust keeps your assets confidential and out of public records. We assist with a broad range of trusts, including:
- Irrevocable trusts
- Revocable trusts
- Living trusts
- Family trusts
- Life insurance trusts
- Special needs trusts
