A/B Trusts, Protect Your Assets and Avoid Probate

David T. Phillips: Estate Planning Made Easy podcast

For centuries, an estate planning attorney was solely an attorney that represented clients before a probate judge, in an effort to maximize the desired estate transfer. They would simply help draft a will and represent that will in court to validate it. While the phone book is full of so-called estate planning attorneys, most still follow this philosophy.

A true estate planning attorney, however, is much more than a “hearse chaser.” He helps you craft a logical distribution plan that has true dynasty provisions avoiding the expenses of probate, blessing multiple generations. Estate Planning Specialists is the quarterback of your estate plan. We make certain your plan maximizes your dreams, and takes advantage of all loopholes, strategies, and top products.

Using this little-known estate planning technique, you not only avoid probate, the Credit Shelter “B” Trust can grow to unimaginable sums with absolutely no future federal or state estate taxes. What’s more, this tax-free growth can last as long as there are assets in the trust.
