    A Trust Tailored To Your Specific Goals

    As you consider your legacy, you may have very specific goals you want to accomplish beyond merely leaving a certain asset to a special person. A trust is a useful estate planning tool that protects assets, preserves wealth and is customizable to your specific wishes. You may structure a trust to care for needs of your children, including adult children with special needs, or tailor it to prevent a beneficiary from spending an inheritance too quickly. Unlike a simple will, a trust avoids the long probate process for your surviving family.

    Helping You Understand The Benefits Of Trusts

    At the Griffith Law Firm in Texas, our unique granddaughter-grandfather legal team can review your personal situation and determine if a trust is right for your estate plan. With over 60 years of experience helping clients and families create trusts based on their specific needs, we know who needs one and why. We are here to help. Our extensive background allows us to advise if a customized trust best suits your situation.

    With two offices located in Duncanville and Dallas, we have a wealth of personal estate knowledge. We will help you create a trust that will protect and disperse your assets the way you desire and will work to minimize your estate tax liabilities.

    Different types of trusts we can create include:

    • Living/revocable trust (also called an inter vivos trust)
    • Irrevocable living trust
    • Special needs trust

    Trusts can also play a valuable role in Medicaid planning for the future. Learn more here.

    Maintaining A Trust

    When you pass away, your estate is transferred to those designated in your will, but first it makes a lengthy stop in probate court. A trust may help your beneficiaries avoid the stresses of probate, reduce estate taxes and distribute assets more specifically than a will, but the caveat is that it requires more maintenance and monitoring of assets. Everyone who has a trust should also have a will, to account for assets that may not get put into the trust. Our lawyers have extensive experience in all areas of estate planning and can guide you in setting up and managing a trust tailored to your needs.

    Asset Distribution In Texas: Ensure Your Wishes Are Honored

    If you don't have a will, the state of Texas uses its own process for disbursing assets. Don't leave the legacy of your life's work to chance. A well-crafted will determines beneficiaries and may name an executor to settle your estate. Our lawyers can help you document preferences for personal property distribution, an advance directive, directives to physicians and family or surrogates, and all crucial information for a complete and thorough will. Be prepared with a properly drafted last will and testament that protects your family's future.
