Trust FAQs

What is a trust?

A trust is a legal relationship in which one or more persons or entities (trustees) holds legal title to property and manages it for the benefit of one or more persons or entities (beneficiaries).

Why establish a trust?

A trust can potentially accomplish a wide variety of objectives:

  • Provide continuity in management of trust assets in the event of your incapacity or death.
  • Help your beneficiaries avoid the expense, delay, and publicity of probate.
  • Allow you to create rules for how your assets will be preserved or distributed and to name a trustee to carry out your wishes.
  • Minimize transfer/estate taxes.
  • Allow for the implementation of charitable giving strategies.
