A Trust is an agreement that empowers a manager, (called a trustee) named by you, to use the assets owned by the trust to accomplish the purposes you identify within the trust. Sometimes, a Trust can be an effective part of an estate plan, along with a Will, for the efficient administration of your assets. Crafting an appropriate Trust requires a thorough understanding of the client as a person – her core principles and values. It is at this very personal level that the Laurel Law Group excels.

Our goal is to ensure that the values you practiced in life continue to guide your trustee.
