Trusts Lawyer in Smithtown

Protect and Distribute Your Assets in a Private & Timely Manner with the Help of Our Experienced Trust Attorneys

Why You Need a Trust?

A trust is a written legal document that accomplishes many of the same goals as a Last Will and Testament. In a trust, you appoint an individual called a “trustee” to be in charge of managing your assets and distributing your assets to the beneficiaries you have specified. However, a trust allows your trust assets to be distributed without having to involve a probate court. The matter remains private between the trustee and the beneficiaries and no public record is created. There are many different types of trusts. Certain types of trusts provide asset protection which is necessary if you have future creditors or if you are applying for Medicaid to cover health care costs. 

When You Need a Trust?

You do not have to be at retirement age, or older, to set up a trust. Oftentimes clients who come to us to set up a trust do so in an emergency, and many wish they would have sorted it out much earlier. Determining if it’s time for you to set up a trust is quite simple:

  • Do you want to ensure the assets and belongings you’ve worked so hard for are protected for your loved ones?
  • Do you own real property in multiple states?
  • Do you want to disinherit a family member?
  • Do you need long term care?
  • Do you have special needs beneficiaries?
  • Do you want to avoid probate?
  • Do you have a taxable estate?

If so, then it’s time to consider a trust. But in order to create one, you’ll need an experienced attorney by your side.
