Wills benefit lawyers. Trusts benefit the clients. Too often lawyers sell wills to clients only to sit back and wait to sell their probate services to their clients' heirs. There are
many advantages trusts have over wills in not only eliminating probate but in also protecting your assets for your heirs. Legal services are not needed to do the clerical work in settling a trust after death.
Be sure to talk to your attorney regarding your estate and planning it out to help avoid probate.
