Creating A Will And/Or Trust That Fits Your Needs And Keeps Family Harmony

A last will and testament, and a trust may both be needed to fully protect your interests. Both working together are effective tools in protecting family assets and preserving wealth. Estate planning issues are an important part of long-term care planning.

It is especially important that your will and trust are carefully crafted in a way that fully protects your interests and avoids costly litigation. A will may not be enough in some situations. Some situations may call for a trust (such as an irrevocable living trust) to protect financial assets, avoid probate and protect against estate taxes. Advanced planning with blended families (marriages, divorces, children of second spouses, etc) is also an important consideration in crafting an estate both for elders and their children.

Attorney Olga Berdé Mahl assists clients with all issues concerning the drafting and amending of wills and trusts. She also routinely assists clients in diffusing issues that arise involving contested wills and estate disputes. She is results-focused and proactive in finding a resolution that best fits her clients' individual needs.
