Trust and Estate Administration

A trust is an effective tool for managing your assets during your lifetime and for the benefit of your loved ones after you are gone.  A trust ensures that your assets will be managed in the future according to your wishes, as well as providing significant tax advantages to help preserve those assets in the present.

Our Service Commitment

As your executor, we ensure that your instructions will be scrupulously carried out and your beneficiaries will receive committed, personal attention throughout the administration of your estate.  

Our dedicated staff will manage cash and securities, including any business, real estate, or other special investments.  We are even prepared to help beneficiaries revise their own financial plans once the assets have been distributed.

Above all, family members can count on us to listen carefully, to explain complicated settlement procedures, and to be present every step of the way as special arrangements are made and carried out.

We can also, as your agent, assist you with settlement of another person’s estate.  As Executor, you can retain the decision-making responsibilities but we will perform most of the administrative and asset management tasks.
