Trusts are legal instruments that hold and control assets, managing and distributing them for specific purposes. They provide tax relief, preserving the wealth you will want to access later or pass on to your heirs. But the estate planning attorneys at Jean M. Mahserjian, Esq., P.C. understand that trusts are more. They are an extension of yourself: they contain your dreams and aspirations, uphold your values and priorities, and advance your goals and ambitions. For legal instruments to succeed on such a personal level, they need to be drafted specifically with you in mind.
Jean M. Mahserjian, Esq., P.C. takes a client-directed approach to trusts. We don’t try to sell you a template instrument; we listen and learn as much about your circumstances as you wish to share, then carefully select and craft the trust documents you need to address your concerns. For more than 20 years, we’ve assisted clients with a variety of trusts, for a multitude of purposes, including:
We believe that if you’re taking the time to talk to us, the least we can do is listen. We have two ears and only one mouth, and our clients seem to favor that ratio. Together, we can design the proper combination of trusts to meet all your financial needs.
At the minimum, every person should have a last will and testament to prevent your estate from stagnating in probate, and wasting away under court costs and legal fees. Your will also allows you to express your preferences for the care of your minor children and any dependent adults. But other instruments are also necessary to secure your future: a living will, a durable power of attorney and a medical power of attorney offer substantial safeguards should you become incapacitated through illness or the infirmity of age. Taking the time now to meet with our attorneys will ensure that your intentions are honored in the future.
