Wills & Trusts Attorney in Palm Desert, CA
You have probably heard, or even decided already, that it is time to put together a will, or maybe a trust for your family. Perhaps you are not sure what you need. Our goal is to help you understand the important differences between a “will” and a “trust” and about the other documents you will want to have in place to protect your family. It could save your family a lot of time, money, and heartache. And, it will give you peace of mind.
One of the most important differences between a will and a trust that surprises many people is that a will does NOT avoid probate. Even if you carefully document your wishes in a will, your estate will still end up in court after your death. Worse yet, a will does not prevent conflict for your loved ones after you’re gone; many times, it ensures it.
The only way to avoid the delay, expense, and public nature of the probate system is to have a fully funded, personalized trust that will meet the unique needs of your family.
We look forward to creating and supporting a plan that works for your loved ones today and in the future.
