Crain & Wooley Invites You to Come Learn About Wills and Living Trusts

Mansfield Trusts Attorneys

We Can Protect Your Wealth & Assets

Trusts are the most comprehensive of all estate planning options because they can help you simplify estate settlement during the probate process. If your goal is to avoid the hassle of probate and reduce family disputes over your assets after you pass away, then you need to reach out to our legal team at Crain & Wooley to discuss which type of trust you need to include in your estate plan.

Types of Trusts

We help clients of all backgrounds throughout the greater Mansfield area utilize a variety of trusts to pursue their planning goals.

We can determine which type of trust will provide the strongest legal protection for you and your loved ones, so please get in touch if you need help establishing or administering the following types of trusts:

  • Living Trust
  • Special Needs Trust
  • Revocable Trust
  • Irrevocable Trust
  • Minor Trust
  • Educational Trust
  • Life Insurance Trust

Why Should I Include a Trust in My Estate Plan?

Clients turn to us for legal guidance with trusts because they can gain the following benefits:

  • Avoid In-State and Out-of-State Probate: Unlike a will, trusts are portable. So if you have real estate in several states, a trust would allow your beneficiaries to avoid the probate process in the states where the property is owned.
  • Prepare for Nursing Home Expenses: Our firm helps senior clients prepare for the possibility of living in a nursing home. With the average monthly costs of nursing home care in Texas being $6,000 or more, people use irrevocable trusts to protect their assets from being spent on nursing home costs.
  • Protect A Loved One with Special Needs: With a special needs trust, your loved one won't have to worry about losing any type of public assistance they already receive due to income requirements.
  • Protect Assets from Heirs: We know that some people struggle with harmful behaviors. That is why we help clients create trusts with special instructions to protect both their assets and loved ones who are known to take financial risks.
  • Provide for Minor Children or Grandchildren: Trusts can be used to safeguard a minor’s inheritance until you believe they are mature enough to receive it.
  • Avoid Estate Taxes: Taxes play an important part in civil discourse, but creating a trust can prevent the government from taking more than its fair share.

Let Our Legal Team Help You Choose the Right Type of Trust

With so many options for creating a trust to protect your valuable assets, it is in your best interest to speak with a knowledgeable estate planning attorney at Crain & Wooley to determine which type of trust you need to achieve your planning goals.

Satisfied Clients Tell Their Stories

  • "Thank you and God Bless you"

    Thank you for being my Living Trust and other Estate documents attorney. Due to our move and storage of business and personal documents, we had trouble locating & we took a lot longer to respond to your drafts, etc. You were very patient with me and my needing lots of explaining of legal terms and meanings. At my age, I was concerned about getting things done but wanting it all done right. You were very prompt in responding to my questions and I think by time of signing I felt confident we had things just the way we wanted to protect my heirs. Thank you and God Bless you.

  • "Smooth and easy"
    Learning about trusts at the meal was easy and educational. The set down at the office was where the finer points of trusts was explained. That is where and when we decided to make it safe and easy for our heirs. Our final meeting where we signed everything and an explanation of each item was given went smooth and easy. All in all I would say the investment in the trust was worth it.
    Thank you to Crain & Wooley office and staff

  • "Excellent, Highly recommend"

    We went to seminar to just find out what we needed to do for a will, They gave us all the info we needed right then there. Offered a really good price if we signed up to get one that day. A few weeks later after our appointment we have a Living trust. They were helpful with all our questions and were very thorough with these explaining the whole process. They stuck with the price that we paid + let us call anytime if we had any questions. Excellent, Highly recommend this company.
