Trusts and Estate Planning Services

Welcome to the Law Office of Robert J. Warren, P.A., where we specialize in crafting comprehensive trust solutions tailored to your unique financial and family circumstances. Trusts are powerful legal tools that allow you to protect your assets, provide for your loved ones, and ensure your wishes are carried out, even after you are gone. Trusts can also be used to ensure that your needs are properly cared for in the event of your incapacity. We are dedicated to helping you navigate the complexities of trust planning and creation.

Why Choose Trusts in Your Estate Plan?

Trusts offer a range of benefits, including:

1. Asset Protection: Safeguard your wealth from creditors, lawsuits, and other potential threats.

2. Probate Avoidance: Assets held in trusts typically avoid the costly and time-consuming probate process, ensuring a smoother transition for your heirs.

3. Privacy: Trusts offer a level of privacy that public wills do not, as they are typically not part of the public record.

4. Control: Specify how and when your assets are distributed to beneficiaries, ensuring your wishes are upheld.

5. Incapacity Planning: Trusts can be used to manage assets if you become incapacitated, ensuring your personal care and financial well-being is maintained.

6. Tax Efficiency: Certain trusts can help reduce estate taxes, benefiting your heirs.

Types of Trusts We Offer:

The Law Office of Robert J. Warren, P.A. offers a variety of trusts to meet your specific goals:

1. Revocable Living Trusts: Maintain control over your assets during your lifetime while simplifying the distribution process after your passing.

2. Irrevocable Trusts: Protect assets from taxation, creditors, and ensure long-term financial security for beneficiaries.

3. Special Needs Trusts: Provide for loved ones with disabilities without affecting their government benefits.

4. Charitable Remainder Trusts: Achieve philanthropic goals while securing income for yourself or loved ones.

5. Family Trusts: Preserve family wealth and provide for future generations.

6. Testamentary Trusts: These trusts are included in your will and become active upon your passing, and are often used for minor beneficiaries.

Our Trust Creation Process:

Drafting a proper trust can be a daunting task for those who are not familiar with legal jargon and procedures. Having an experienced trust attorney by your side can provide you with peace of mind that everything is being done correctly and that your estate plan will be carried out precisely in accordance with your wishes.

At the Law Office of Robert J. Warren, P.A., we follow a clear and client-centric approach to creating trusts:

1. Initial Consultation: We begin with a detailed consultation to understand your financial situation, family dynamics, and your specific objectives.

2. Trust Design: Our experienced attorneys will design a trust structure that aligns with your goals, using the most suitable trust type(s).

3. Document Drafting: We draft the trust documents, ensuring they meet all legal requirements and reflect your intentions accurately.

4. Review and Finalization: We carefully review the trust with you to ensure it accurately represents your intentions. Any necessary adjustments are made at this stage.

5. Execution and Witnessing: We will guide you through the execution process, and ensure all legal formalities are met, including proper witnessing so that you can rest easy knowing that you have a legally enforceable trust.

6. Funding the Trust: We guide and assist you in transferring assets into the trust, an essential step to ensure they are protected.

7. Ongoing Maintenance: Through our annual maintenance program (optional), we provide guidance on trust management and updates. For an annual fee we will make any requested revisions, as well as perform any additional funding that is required (filing and/or recording costs are payable separately).

8. Safe Storage: As part of your estate planning package, you will receive a one-year membership to DocuBank. This service provides 24/7 access to your estate planning documents, where and when you need them.
