Trusts, Wills & Estate Planning

Estate planning is an essential part of ensuring that your assets and property are distributed upon your death according to your wishes. When done correctly, it can eliminate uncertainties and conflict for your heirs and beneficiaries, protect your assets from certain claims and judgments of creditors, and often reduce taxes. Utah has recently enacted a statute that, if properly utilized, protects assets held in certain trusts from most attacks of creditors—arguably the best protection of any State trust law in the country at this time. Having a Will is simply not enough; indeed, it may cause more problems for your family upon your passing if you only have a Will.
