Trusts Lawyer North Hills, CA

In North Hills, California, and throughout the state and the country, trusts are a fundamental aspect of effective estate planning. Generally speaking, trusts grant a number of benefits to the trustor and the eventual beneficiaries, including (but not limited to) tax reduction, alternatively structured distribution of trust assets, and probate avoidance.

For example, assets that have been placed in a trust (i.e., a revocable living trust or a property-based trust such as a QPRT) typically avoid formal probate, minimizing the time and effort required for distribution. Probate is a court-supervised process that can slow down the handling of estate assets, which can cause a lot of problems for beneficiaries who have been put in a vulnerable financial position following the death of their loved one.

Alternatively, a trust can be structured in such a way as to protect the assets from being misused. For example, a trust with a built-in spendthrift clause gives the trustee control over distribution of the assets so that the beneficiary cannot overspend.

Whether you’re interested in establishing a trust, have been named the trustee and are confused as to how to properly administer the trust itself, or are a beneficiary and are involved in a dispute over the trust assets, it’s important that you get in touch with a qualified trusts lawyer in North Hills, CA for further guidance. Let the Law Offices of Darrell C. Harriman help you today.
