  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    When your loved one dies with a Trust and you are the Trustee, sometimes you need some help to complete the administration. Having a Trust is less expensive, less complex, and faster than probate, but being a Trustee does not come naturally to most people! Often Trustees need legal advice to get started, which can prevent big problems down the road. When there are few assets, Laura can get your questions answered and set you on the right path. When there are complex assets and many beneficiaries, you may need consistent guidance. Contact Laura for a complimentary discovery meeting to decide if she can be of service to you and your family.
