Trust development 

Our attorneys are well trained and experienced to handle any legal situation. We can devise the best revocable living trust that has the best outcome for you and your family. A trust creates a legal arrangement that allows the holding of property by a trustee for the benefit of another person or for yourself. By maintaining assets in a trust, you may be able to minimize taxes and leave a larger inheritance. 

With the help of legal services., the use of a trust is also a way to provide a steady income to the beneficiary over the course of time, rather than distribution in a lump sum. This strategy can reduce the beneficiary's taxes and allow the trust to grow through proper investment. Charitable trusts can also be established.

We offer FREE initial consultations. (860) 676-1336

Probate Support

When someone passes away, probate may possibly be required to legally transfer title of assets to the appropriate beneficiaries, to appoint an executor or administrator of the estate, or even to determine the distribution of estate assets.
