Trusts

Revocable Trusts are an important tool in estate planning that allow you to direct how your assets are distributed after you die while allowing you use of those assets during your lifetime. Two of the most important benefits of a trust include avoidance of probate and privacy for you and your heirs. A trust exists to provide financial protection and to specify how and when to pass assets on to a beneficiary. The common belief that trusts are suitable only for the very wealthy is simply untrue; trusts can benefit a great many people.
