We recommend wills for younger clients and trusts for middle-aged and older clients. Wills are great because they are relatively quick and easy to make. Trusts have some benefits, such as protecting the inheritance from the recipients’ spouses and creditors, save money on estate taxes and avoid the asset freeze that happens when a court is involved in an estate. Trusts also add limitations, and as such, should be used carefully. This is what members of the NYC community ask us about estate planning (click for the answers):
