Wills & Trusts
A will is a legal document, often called your “Last Will and Testament”. A will is prepared and signed under specific requirements of the law. It is effective only upon your death. A will is designed to name who will receive your assets at your death.
A trust is a legal document between a person and their trustee. With a revocable living trust, the person setting up the trust can be the trustee and continue to have total control of the trust assets. The trust can provide for them and their loved ones in the event of disability and at their death. The trust allows the client to continue to enjoy the benefits of their assets by being the beneficiary of the trust, but allows the trust assets to stay out of probate.
Christine, Thank you so much for all of your help and guidance with my father’s estate. You definitely
made the process simple and stress free. It was a pleasure working with you as well. | I have worked with Michael Pitt for more than 20 years and in my experience no one is better at resolving difficult issues and still keeping everyone happy. | There are wide differences in lawyer’s abilities and experiences. Common sense and a level head remain important. Christine Emison handled my estate planning and probate matters with great skill, compassion and timeliness. | Mike, …Your knowledge and experience in a difficult area of my life has brought peace of mind.… I hope that it is acceptable to you that I share with friends and family. I want those I care about to know about your services! | Chris, … With the many changes in laws impacting our assets, health care and estate, it is a real comfort to have you working for our best interests. We appreciate all your and the staff at Pitt & Emison’s efforts and results. | Mike, … Your clients are lucky to have you on their side, looking for the very best, practical solution to achieve their specific goals. It is a pleasure to work with you. | We feel confident that everything was set up in the best way possible after consulting with Chris. She was very patient and explained everything in such a way that it made sense to us. We loved working with Chris and appreciate her tremendously. | Chris was extremely dedicated, punctual and personable. We were lucky to have been referred to her. We were very satisfied with her work and demeanor. | I could not have asked for a more professional, knowledgeable, efficient individual. As an added bonus, Chris really cares about her clients in a way that I haven’t seen in the business world in a long time. It is refreshing and makes you feel very safe in her hands.
