Wills and Trusts
The Law Office of Ian Van Leer advises and assists clients with an array of estate planning instruments, including:

Wills and trusts are legal instruments used for the control and/or preservation of property. Wills generally deal with property upon death, and are thus referred to as testamentary instruments. Trusts, on the other hand, may relate to the control of property during and after the property owner’s life.
Wills and trusts are useful and powerful tools in controlling and protecting your property for yourself and your loved ones. In some scenarios, they may be your best or only option. However, the laws and policies regarding wills and trusts can be extensive and complex. For this reason, it is important that you are well-informed and know your options.

Our firm can help you choose which estate planning document is right for you and help draft amendments to keep your current instrument up-to-date.
