Do You Need A Trust?

Many people do not know the difference between a will and a trust. A will is a document that explains how a person’s estate will be distributed after they pass away. A trust allows another person (a trustee) to transfer your assets to your beneficiaries at any time, depending on the stipulations of the trust.

At the Family Legal Center, LLC, in Monroeville, attorney Laura Cohen has more than 25 years of experience helping individuals and families understand their estate planning needs. A trust can be a necessary document that will benefit you and your family now and in the future.

We Will Get To Know You And Your Goals

How do you know if you need a trust? We can walk you through the process of creating an estate plan. Our first step is to get to know you and your goals. This will help us determine if you need a trust and what other estate planning documents need to be included in your estate plan.

We will work with you, an accountant and any other necessary experts to ensure we have your best interests protected. This includes obtaining the best tax advice when setting up your trust to protect you, your family and your assets.

Types Of Trusts
