Establishing Wills And Trusts In Massachusetts

Wills and trusts are effective estate planning tools for protecting your assets and providing for loved ones. At George & Davis, P.C., in Sturbridge, we handle a broad range of estate planning matters, including establishing wills and trusts. Our lawyers will work with you personally to help you create an estate plan that reflects your unique needs and goals.

The Importance Of Wills

A will fulfills many important objectives, including:

  • Directing how your property will be divided among your heirs
  • Naming the executor who will oversee the administration of your estate
  • Appointing guardians for minor children

Without a will in place, these matters will be out of your control and determined by state law. Our attorneys can help you keep these decisions in your hands by establishing a will that will stand up to scrutiny.

The Advantages Of Trusts

A trust is a means of transferring ownership of property to another person or entity while maintaining control of how that property is used. Trusts can help property pass through probate, sparing surviving loved ones from the lengthy and costly legal process. Certain trusts can spare assets from the tremendous cost of long-term care.

We help clients establish all types of trusts, including revocable and irrevocable trusts, living trusts and special-needs trusts. Our lawyers will work with you personally to help you establish trusts that protect your assets and fulfill your wishes.
