Trust formation focuses on establishing various types of trusts to manage assets and provide for beneficiaries. This includes revocable and irrevocable trusts, special needs trusts, and charitable trusts. Trust formation requires careful consideration of the settlor's goals and objectives, as well as an understanding of applicable tax and legal regulations.
Estate planning involves the development of strategies to manage an individual's assets during their lifetime and ensure a smooth transfer of wealth upon their death. This process may include the creation of wills, trusts, and other estate planning documents to minimize estate taxes, provide for beneficiaries, and avoid probate.
Probate and estate administration involve the legal process of distributing a deceased individual's assets and settling their affairs. This process includes validating the will, appointing an executor or administrator, paying debts and taxes, and distributing assets to beneficiaries in accordance with the will or state intestacy laws.
Guardianship and conservatorship deal with the appointment and oversight of individuals or entities responsible for the care and management of a person's personal and financial affairs when they are unable to do so themselves. This may involve establishing guardianships or conservatorships for minors, elderly individuals, or individuals with special needs.
Trust administration involves managing the assets held in a trust, ensuring compliance with the trust's terms, and acting in the best interests of the beneficiaries. This may include managing investments, making distributions, maintaining records, and filing tax returns.
Estate and trust litigation encompasses legal disputes arising from the administration of estates and trusts. This may include contesting the validity of a will, interpreting trust provisions, resolving disputes among beneficiaries, or pursuing claims against fiduciaries for breach of their duties.
