Knowledgeable Support Through Estate Law And Litigation
Estate planning becomes crucial later in life to ensure that your assets are distributed to your loved ones in the manner you wish. The attorneys at Smith, Carrillo & Reeder can handle every step of the process, including drafting any wills or trusts that your family needs.
Handling Your Wills And Trusts
There are many benefits of having either a will or a trust. A will ensures that your property is properly handled at the time of your death. It can also designate someone a guardian of minors. If you do not have a will, the state will take care of your property according to the laws on the books.
A trust is a legal arrangement made for the benefit of someone else. There are various advantages to getting a trust, including having limited estate taxes and avoiding the cost of probate.
