What is a Trust?

A trust is a vehicle that is created to hold money or property in a way that is contractual and agreed upon by those involved. A Revocable Living Trust is usually known as an instrument to avoid probate, but it is also a powerful tool to keep your estate plan a private family matter and to protect you, your family and your assets during life and its challenges now and in the future.

Types of Trusts

  • Revocable Living Trust
  • Living Trust
  • Joint Trust
  • Irrevocable Trust
  • Medicaid Trust
  • Land Trust
  • Testamentary Trust

Andrea was absolutely wonderful in helping set up my parents' estate as they were going through several health issues. ... She accommodated my family as I was in town for only a few days to help my parents and she made sure that the entire estate planning process was completed. Her caring and personable attitude made this difficult time a little easier. She even spent additional time answering follow up questions over several different phone calls. I highly recommend Andrea to anyone seeking a thoughtful professional estate attorney who truly cares about the families she works with.read more

Andrea Jakob was great in helping us work through our health care surrogacy, will and trust. Ours was well overdue, we... hadn't done our will since our children were small and now they have their own children. She helped us think through every aspect. She listened to our ideas, gave us her opinion and recommendations and created what was best for us and our family. Andrea is smart, very knowledgeable about estate planning, she is funny and quite personable. She truly wants to do what is best for you at the time you are with her and for the future. We highly recommend her!read more

It has been a pleasure working with Andrea. From the very beginning, she made it comfortable and relatively easy to... talk about challenging topics such as wills, estates, and trusts. She laid out the plan in an organized and friendly manner, explaining things "at my level" so that I could understand, and I never felt rushed. Not only is she very smart and professional, she also has a warm customer service approach, taking care to offer treats such as hot tea. I recommend her highly and I look forward to our continued relationship.read more

Let me start by saying that I normally am not one to write a review. But Andrea Jakob help and expertise definitely... deserve high praise! She was so helpful in getting my wife and my wills and trust set up. Something that we really appreciated was just how down to earth she was. There was absolutely no stuffiness in her manner. In fact, after our first couple of visits, I pretty much regarded her as a very knowledgeable friend. She really knows her business and helped us feel comfortable when speaking with her. I appreciated that she was more than willing to explained something to me more than once and helped to clarify any questions I had. My wife and I are very happy and impressed with her work and dedication. We strongly recommend her to any one seeking help with setting up their wills and trusts.read more
