ESTELLE & KENNEDY, APLC strongly advises clients to form living trusts. A living trusts can serve to benefit the client by effectively transferring substantially all property into the living trust during the life of the settlor. Further, at death, the living trusts will eliminate automatic court supervision concerning the distribution of assets.

A properly formed trust will also provide details as to how assets, and the income earned by the trust, are to be distributed after death. If the client becomes disabled or incapacitated, the trust is in place and makes provision to manage the financial affairs of the settlor and to name a successor trustee to carryout the settlor’s intent.
