Trust Law Attorneys in Pittsburgh

How Can A Trust Help Me Achieve My Estate Planning Goals?

The Pittsburgh trust law attorneys at Richards & Richards, LLP have been providing estate planning assistance to individuals and their families in Pittsburgh, the North Hills and throughout western Pennsylvania for three generations.

Trusts can be used as effective tools for handling many situations, including a vehicle for leaving a legacy; protecting assets before and after death; ensuring minors, handicapped, and irresponsible beneficiaries are adequately cared for; and minimizing estate and inheritance taxes.

Why Should I Use An Attorney?

There are many fly-by-night trust creators. Many are not familiar with specific Pennsylvania laws and may only know how to handle an estate on a national basis, which may or may not be beneficial to you and your unique situation (depending on your assets and your goals).

Sometimes, these companies can result in higher charges by creating unnecessary trusts. A qualified Pennsylvania trust law attorney will make sure you actually need a trust to accomplish your objectives and goals.

Also, a qualified estate planning attorney will look at the whole picture, not an isolated piece of the picture. At Richards & Richards, LLP, we will make sure you choose the proper vehicle to best accomplish your overall goals. We don’t want you to be penny wise and pound foolish.

If a trust is appropriate, we can also help you choose the right trust, including the following:

  • Testamentary trust
  • Beneficiary trust
  • Special needs trust
  • Charitable remainder trust
  • Living trust
  • Revocable trust
  • Irrevocable trust
