So what can we do for you?
What does a Providence trust lawyer do?
To put it simply, trust law is a type of estate law where an executor (that is, someone whom you designate to be the person to carry out your final wishes) distributes your wealth to the people you leave it to, but doesn’t require them to go through the probate process to do so.
You can designate an attorney to be your executor, if you wish, but you may also designate someone who is not an attorney to be your executor. If you choose the latter option, that lawyer will serve as your executor’s legal advisor, so that your final wishes can be carried out under the parameters of the law.
However, there are a number of reasons why you should designate an attorney to handle your final wishes, and they include, but are certainly not limited to, the following:
- You have a substantial estate and you want to keep the requisite Federal estate taxes as low as possible.
- You would like to dictate the terms under which your heirs receive their inheritance, thus preventing legal problems down the line.
- You are leaving part of your estate to a minor, and you wish to ensure that he or she receives his or her inheritance in accordance with your wishes without having to name a guardian for the minor.
While working with an outside, third party can prove to be a bit complicated in the short term, the Law Office of Howe and Garside will do their best to make the process as simple, and as smooth, as possible. In addition, by creating a trust with a Providence trust attorney, you are ensuring that your final wishes are carried out, even if they are contested in court.
