Few things are as important as planning for your family's future. Through proper estate planning, you can ensure that your heirs will be provided for and help your estate avoid the sometimes complicated probate process. You need experienced legal counsel to help ensure that your estate plan is carried out properly. I am Collinsville wills and trusts lawyer John Bitzer, and I have been helping people in southwestern Illinois develop sound estate plans for over 30 years.If you want to know more about how your family can benefit from a solid estate plan, I can answer your questions.
As an estate planning lawyer, I have the experience and skill to help you set up a trust that will meet your needs. There are a number of trust options available, including:
• Living trusts
• Revocable trusts
• Irrevocable trusts
• Special needs trusts
Each type of trust has its own unique advantages. They can be particularly helpful if privacy is important to you. A trust can help you avoid probate and keep information regarding your assets out of the public eye. I can also inform you of any tax benefits and liabilities concerning your particular trust. In every case, I will work closely with you to develop a plan that is tailored to meet your specific needs.
