Special Needs

Maximizing Your Inheritance For Your Loved One Through a Special Needs Trust.

If you live with a loved one who has a disability, then you are probably all too familiar with the burdening worry that comes with thinking about their future. These concerns probably include thinking of how to support them in their future, who will take care of them if something happens to you, and what else you can do to give them a better quality of life.

If these are familiar, you will be able to benefit from a special needs plan.


Probate Estate Administration

Are you worried about how your assets will be distributed after you’re gone?

Without leaving any documents in place, the state gets to choose how best to distribute your assets according to the law. This complicated, painful, costly and frustrating process is known as the probate.

Probate is a legal procedure that provides the courts authority to distribute assets to beneficiaries. If assets are not taken into a trust even with a will in place, a probate needs to take place before your heirs obtain access to it. With hardly any exceptions to this procedure, Probate Estate Administration can be a big help.

Trust Administration

We have the accounting, legal, and investment expertise that can help successor trustees effectively administer the trusts handed to them.

Trust administration is a complex process which happens if a decedent with a proper estate plan has his assets transferred into a trust, leading to the estate being administered without court involvement into a probate. Therefore successor trustees would be responsible for trust administration.

Should this happen, the trustee should be able to carry out their duties which are specified in the trust, on top of other fiduciary duties that are required by law. Without a proper trust administration set in place, the trustee could be vulnerable to personal and financial liabilities.

Asset Protection

Finding The Best Way To Protect Your Assets Through an Evaluation of Your Holdings and Special Methods To Ensure That You Are Protected

The legal system is continuously being abused for selfish reasons, including depriving others of their wealth. The harsh reality is that there are millions of lawsuits filed each year for unnecessary reasons, and once settled these are sometimes even for amounts much larger than the original liability. People sue for various reasons, including automobile accidents, professional misconduct, malpractice, liability for other’s debts, and many more.

Veterans Aid and Attendance

“People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.” – Richard Grenier

Night after night, as we go to sleep, there are men and women who stand guard in defense of our freedom. Veterans have fought in wars, risking their lives in order to defend and preserve freedom for the country. If not for them, we would not be where we are now. It is therefore imperative that we remember their sacrifice and give the gratitude and honor due to them and their families.
