If a will is the cornerstone of an estate plan, a trust is a roof that provides shelter — from taxes, from probate and from the ravages of end-of-life care. Trusts can also protect the assets of vulnerable loved ones. At Higgins, Roberts & Suprunowicz, P.C., our estate planning lawyers are committed to helping New York families make effective use of trusts.

Protecting Loved Ones and Assets: The Benefits of Establishing a Trust
The benefits of trusts are numerous. A trust can be used to avoid probate, which is especially beneficial to those who own property in multiple jurisdictions. A trust can preserve a loved one's eligibility to receive public benefits or provide care for a minor or disabled beneficiary. Trusts can be used to manage property on behalf of a loved one who cannot handle the responsibility of managing property on his or her own. Certain trusts can mitigate the bite of estate taxes. Whatever your needs are, our attorneys can help you find a trust that will help you achieve your goals.
