Helping Clients Create Trusts
Our attorneys also help clients create trusts. There are two basic types of trusts: inter vivos and testamentary trusts. An inter vivos trust is created while you are alive and can be used to help shield your estate from potential tax consequences as well as help you minimize your own tax and health care burden in your senior years.
A testamentary trust is a trust that is created when you die and can be useful in supporting your loved ones into the future. We help clients create all types of inter vivos and testamentary trusts, including:
