Attorney Mark Thurston can help you explore the myriad legal instruments that are available to help protect your assets, ensure your personal and financial wellbeing throughout the remaining years of life, and facilitate the disposition of your estate upon death. What are the Differences Between Wills and Trusts? Wills ~ A will allows you to transfer assets at the time of your death. There are certain advantages to passing assets through the provisions of your will. Early planning and the execution of a will can ease the burden placed on your loved ones upon your death and avoid unnecessary conflict and dispute. Trusts ~ The establishment of a trust can help to expedite the process of transferring assets to your beneficiaries and to avoid probate upon death. We can work with you to achieve the goals you have in mind and do so in a way that avoids probate. Attorney Thurston can advise you on the different types of trusts available, including the revocable trust, irrevocable trust, special needs trust, wealth preservation, and testamentary trusts, helping you to chose the option that is most suited to your needs and individual situation. We work with clients to establish the trust and ensure proper distribution of the trust fund or trust property to the beneficiaries according to the terms outlined in the trust. Powers of Attorney ~ In its simplest form, a power of attorney is a legal document that gives an individual, known as an "Attorney in fact", the right and authority to act on another's behalf in legal matters. In estate planning, a durable power of attorney is a common and useful legal instrument to authorize another person to act on your behalf concerning property and financial matters, either immediately or when you become disabled and can no longer handle your property or financial and legal affairs on your own. Among other things, the power of attorney can authorize someone to act on your behalf with regard to: Paying for your support and care Conducting financial transactions Dealing with property Handling legal claims Accessing safety deposit boxes Preparing and filing tax returns Entering into contracts for services Making gifts A power of attorney may be limited to granting the attorney in fact the authority to act only for a single transaction or it may authorize the attorney in fact to engage in all transactions.
