Ball Morse Lowe, PLLC, we utilize a variety of estate planning tools to benefit our clients. Our lawyers are available to create:
Our estate planning attorneys are members of WealthCounsel, a prestigious association of estate planners and business attorneys throughout the country. WealthCounsel is composed of legal and financial professionals at the top of their fields.
A revocable living trust is a legal agreement created during your life that can be revoked and amended. Its primary advantage is allowing assets to pass to the named beneficiaries according to the terms of the trust without being subjected to the probate process (any property not included in the trust will still be subject to the probate process). This can save a considerable amount of time, money and frustration.
When creating a revocable living trust, the grantor transfers the title of the property to an appointed trustee (both the grantor and the trustee can be the same person). Other than executing documents as trustee of the trust, this will have no effect on the use of the property during the grantor's lifetime. The grantor can still enjoy all the benefits of owning those assets without having to worry about probate.
In a perfect world, all of your assets will be transferred to your revocable living trust, but often times and for various reasons, there is property that does not get transferred to the trust. A "pour-over" last will and testament can ensure that all property not owned by the trust at death is transferred to the trust and distributed in accordance with the trust terms. In addition, a will allows for specific gifts of personal property and other items not included in the trust.

Great advocacy, and excellent at keeping client informed about options.
Jennifer assisted us in making a trust, and all of the additional documents that go with it – advanced directives, powers of attorney, etc. She was professional, knowledgeable, cheerful, personable. We are very happy with our association and look forward to doing business with them in the future!
