Missouri Trust Administration Attorneys.

Many people seek to avoid the probate process for many reasons, not the least of which is to save their families from the hassle. If you wish to avoid probate, a knowledgeable estate planning attorney can help you explore your options. Attorneys Case & Rajnoha have more than 65 years of experience helping clients in and around Ballwin, Missouri, with estate planning and administration. Whether setting up a trust or gifting large assets, we seek to help clients choose the best option for their unique situation.

Avoiding Probate Through Trust Agreements

Trusts and living trusts are similar to wills in that they dictate how your property will be distributed upon your passing. Instead of going through probate, however, you select a trustee to distribute the property outside of court. There are many different types of trusts, depending on your unique situation. We work in close consultation with you to help you make informed decisions about:

  1. How best to distribute property
  2. Choosing an honest and fair-minded trustee
  3. Your options for setting up a guardianship or conservatorship for dependents
  4. Possible tax advantages of different trusts

Other concerns you may have about your estate

A trust often lets you keep control of your finances and assets throughout your lifetime. It also keeps your estate transactions private, as all probate proceedings are made public once they are finalized. They also often save on probate court fees.

Other Non-Probate Transfers

Our lawyers can also help you transfer property through other measures, such as pay or transfer on death designations for financial accounts, cars, boats and other possessions with titles. We also have experience handling beneficiary deeds for real estate you wish to bestow.

Whatever your needs, we advise you on what would best to financially benefit you and your intended beneficiaries. Our firm is known for the thorough, efficient and personal dedication we bring to each case we handle.
