Our Torrance estate planning lawyers have nearly 20 years of experience ready to utilize for the achievement of your most favorable outcome.

Who Can Benefit from an Irrevocable Trust?
A trust is helpful because it allows you to control your wealth, guard your legacy, and abstain from probate. Even someone who feels that they have a minimal amount of wealth can find peace of mind by creating an irrevocable trust.
An irrevocable trust is beneficial for anyone hoping to achieve the following:
- Avoiding or reducing taxes
- Safeguarding assets from creditors
- Taking care of family members who are minors or have special needs
If you wish to create an irrevocable trust, you must sign a written trust agreement and appoint an individual, called a trustee, to oversee your assets. Your trust will distinguish benefactors – the people who will receive certain assets when you pass away. Selecting a dependable trustee is crucial to the overall success of your trust.
