San Jose Trust Administration Attorneys
Asset Distribution Lawyer in Northern California
When someone whose assets are owned by a trust passes away, the estate does not go through probate. But many of the same tasks must be accomplished through the trust administration process. Managing a trust can be a difficult, time consuming, and complicated process, particularly if you are grieving the loss of a loved one.
At Manassau Law Offices, P.C. in San Jose, California, trust administration attorney Elizabeth Manassau can relieve you of the burden of managing all the details and requirements of a trust. We provide skillful assistance in trust administration, including help with tasks such as:
- Marshaling assets
- Preparing an inventory and valuation of assets
- Paying taxes and debts
- Responding to claims against the estate
- Retitling assets
- Distributing property as directed in the trust
Because the trust administration process is much faster than the probate process, asset distribution generally happens relatively quickly. In addition, the fees for trust administration are substantially less than for probate.
Our trust administration attorney personally handles all aspects of the process so you can rest assured that all requirements, obligations, and deadlines are being met. A trust has many advantages and the ease of transferring assets after death is a substantial one for many people who choose to put their assets in a trust.
For assistance in trust administration or to discuss whether a trust is an appropriate estate planning tool for you, please contact Manassau Law Offices at 408-918-0010 to arrange a initial consultation and case evaluation.
