Wills And Trusts

What we can offer you

Will and Trust Preparation in South Florida

Both Wills and Revocable Living Trusts are key elements of the Estate Planning process. Attorney Barry D. Siegel of The Siegel Law Group, P.A. can help you plan, create, or update your current Estate Plan, Will, or Revocable Living Trust.

Anyone can benefit from the legal protection that Estate Planning provides, however the process can be complicated and vary from state to state. We’re here to ensure that every detail you want covered is covered, and we are happy to work with you no matter where you are in the Estate Planning process.

  • Planning
    Estate Planning of any kind begins with our no-cost, no-obligation consultation. Barry Siegel will take the time to get to know you, discuss your concerns, assess your situation and advise you on how to move forward. With 20 years of experience in Estate Planning Law, he can help you determine what documents best fit your situation and needs.
  • Drafting
    Once you have decided whether you want to write a Will or form a Trust, the drafting stage begins. Attorney Barry D. Siegel will meet with you to work out all the details, prepare the documents, and counsel you throughout the process. Once all your specifications are included and outlined as you see fit, the documents will be signed in the presence of a notary and witnesses and made official.
  • Review
    Life is full of unexpected crossroads and turns. Though Wills and Revocable Living Trusts are official, they are changeable. We can help you update your estate planning documents, and we also periodically review them at no extra cost to be sure everything remains up-to-date.

Revocable Living Trust vs. Will

Though both are documents that allow you to set the terms for property distribution after your death, they have some key differences:

  • A Will becomes an official public record, while a Trust remains private.
  • Setting up a Will is initially less expensive, however when it comes time to actually distribute property, a Will requires sometimes costly Probate while a Trust does not.
  • A Will is typically much more general, while a Trust is very specific and requires more effort to put together.
  • A Living Trust has living benefits, whereas a Will only becomes effective upon death.

Living Trusts, or Family Trusts, and Wills play an extremely important role in the Estate Planning process. Deciding which document is right for you depends on many different factors. Call The Siegel Law Group, P.A. to set up a no-cost consultation and get started on planning for the future.
