Long Island Trust Lawyer

Ms. Spirio is a trusted estate probate lawyer for clients across Long Island. She represents clients in both Nassau and Suffolk County. On top of being an estate probate lawyer, she can also be hired as your dependable trust lawyer. The difference between a will and a trust is a topic that every good trust and will attorney should discuss with their clients. Both plans leave physical and financial items for the people being covered. Life savings, valuable possessions and sentimental items are both left in trusts and wills.

What Are The Differences Between a Will and a Trust?

A trust, also known as a "living trust," is a document that gives others the right to manage or care for your property while you are still alive. If you suddenly became unable to look after your property and belongings, a trust gives another person the ability to look after your covered possessions and finances. A trust attorney will help create a trust on your behalf and go over each section with you. Trust attorneys also help your trustees who are the people or relatives you left your property rights to. They educate you and your loved ones about the trust's details and parameters. Trusts can be beneficial if you own a large estate or have accumulated a great net worth.

A will is a legally reviewed and signed document that says how your property will be distributed at time of death. A will's details are typically changed throughout a person's life to adapt to current living conditions. Unlike trusts, wills only go into effect at time of death, rather than at time of legal rendering. A will attorney will help you write your will and assist your loved ones and relatives with the distribution process as your probate lawyer as well. Not all will attorneys work as probate lawyers so it is best to check with your prospective legal consultant.
