Thought of the Day 378

In designing an estate plan that ensures the asset protection of the shares of children, grandchildren, and other beneficiaries, clients often struggle with the question of who will serve as Trustee, there oftentimes seeming to be no clear or viable options.  Yet this question is paramount to the long-term success of one's legacy.  To ease the burden of this epic process and pave the way to success, your estate planning attorney should assist in the presentation, facilitation, and evaluation of qualified fiduciary candidates (potential Trustees), along with client counseling throughout. 

Thought of the Day 377

Friends or relatives who are facing end of life situations often take comfort in knowing they can design and customize their estate plan to protect children and other beneficiaries despite their adverse health circumstances.  The knowledge and awareness that they have complete control over this aspect of their lives can make all the difference during a time of crisis.
