Why Set Up a Trust?

Trusts are a legal construct that “holds” property and assets for the benefit of an individual or group of individuals. Our will and trust law practice makes sure that no single member of the trust can act with the money in such a way that negatively impacts other members of the trust. This makes them perfect for ensuring larger assets are evenly divided among children. Contact us today for help establishing trusts for the following assets:

  • Large Sums of Money

  • Land or Houses

  • Boats

Effective Trust Planning Services

Trusts offer you a variety of other advantages, such as keeping financial information off of the public record and setting money aside for children so that they cannot spend it too frivolously.

 

Estate & Trust Administration

Estate and Trust Administration is the process that a fiduciary goes through to carry out the wishes expressed in a will or trust. At Plopper & Partners, we can assist and counsel the appointed fiduciary at all phases during Estate and Trust Administration.

 

We take the stress out of navigating the process so your family can focus on what is important to them. We ensure trust assets are properly accounted for, appraisals are obtained, tax filing requirements are met, and distributions of estate and trust assets are made in a timely fashion while maintaining regular communication with the family. We have the knowledge combined with the compassion that is required to address the sensitive issues that can arise during

Estate and Trust Administration.

 

Probate & Trust Litigation

The incapacity or death of a family member can encompass strong emotional issues arising from concerns related to beneficiaries’ rights and interests, property ownership, and accounting's. Probate and trust litigation may include will contests, disputes regarding trust distributions, contested guardianship's, or the disputed capacity of the principal, trust maker or testator/testatrix at the time they signed their estate planning documents. 

 

At Plopper & Partners, we make it our goal to avoid drawn-out litigation, control costs, and maintain family relationships. We want to maximize the chances for families to come to a resolution in their cases in the most economical and

advantageous manner possible.
