Westlake Living Trust Information

Do You Need a Living Trust?

A person who wants to reduce the tax burden on assets, keep control of property, and avoid probate, may do so by forming a living trust, which is formed while the person is alive. The living trust also establishes how assets are to be managed after death or in case of incapacitation.

A Lawyer Can Help With Your Living Trust

Different types of living trusts exist and have advantages and disadvantages. Determining which type is best suited to you can be confusing. To ensure your living trust accomplishes what you want it to do, the advice and experience of a Westlake living trust lawyer is advantageous.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It's important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice's billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney?

In general, how much an attorney costs will often depend on these four factors: billing method and pricing structure, type of legal work performed, law firm prestige, and attorney experience. Depending on the legal issue you are facing, an attorney may bill you by the hour, settle on a flat fee, or enter into a contingency fee agreement. The type of legal work you need help with will also play a role in cost incurred.
