Wills vs. Trusts

When we’re talking about Wills vs. Trusts, we need to keep in mind that they have very different and specific benefits. It’s not really accurate to assume one is better than the other. We start by assessing your situation, your goals and your needs at the very beginning of the in-take process. Only then can we find the solution that best suits and protects you and your family in the most appropriate way. 

 While Wills and Trusts do have a lot of overlap, there are also several differences between the two. Ultimately, both are ways to say who will receive your assets, will be the guardians of your children and specific your final arrangements. They just do it in different ways, take effect at different times and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. 

Wills vs. Trusts 


  • Own One or more properties?                                                                          
  • Possess $100K or more in assets?                                                                          
  • Want to avoid Probate Court?   

Then a trust may be right for you.
