Wills And Trusts

Wills and trusts are two foundational documents for developing a secure plan for your future. They provide opportunities to answer the major questions about how property is divided as well as asset protection, however, they do not necessarily answer every question, nor are they intuitive to write.

The volume of "what ifs" that arise when planning for the future can be overwhelming. In order to best protect your interests and those of your loved ones, work with an experienced wills and trusts attorney who will walk you through the estate planning and probate process and help you understand which options will be most effective in your case.

My office, Jeffrey P. White & Associates, P.C., can help you with issues related to wills, living trusts, revocable and irrevocable trusts, and the manner in which each of these can be used for your unique asset protection purposes.

The Benefits Of Using Trusts For Your Life And Death Needs

There are many different kinds of trusts that serve different purposes both during life and after death. Depending upon your goals, trusts often serve as more flexible and portable documents to address both life and death issues and are more widely recognized across state lines.

Wills, while valuable, leave many questions unanswered and often leave you open for will contests and undetermined health care issues during life. For this reason, I often recommend that my clients explore and pursue estate planning options through trusts as they offer more secure and thorough planning options.

My law firm, Jeffrey P. White and Associates, P.C., is focused on educating and finding lasting solutions for clients. To this end, I work with people on an individual basis so they can establish wills and trusts that reflect the full scope of their asset protection needs. Different documents can provide different advantages or limitations. As a lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, I am here to bring those issues to light and make sure your goals are achieved.
