What is the difference between a will and trust?
A will distributes property through a court proceeding called probate. Many of our clients would rather avoid the expense and delay of probate and instead use a revocable trust to transfer their assets. The attorneys at the Yanowitz Law Firm can help you understand the differences between a will and a trust and assist you in deciding what is best for you and your family.
