Santa Clara County Trust Administration Lawyer
One of the reasons people set up a trust is for its tax planning advantages. In my role as tax attorney, I have been able to help generations of individuals set up varying types of trusts.
When one spouse dies, the other spouse often has the ability to assure that the children avoid paying hundreds of thousands of dollars of federal estate tax. It is vitally important that your trust is settled correctly at death. You pay enough taxes during your lifetime—let me help you avoid paying more at your death.
