Trusts used to Avoid Probate, Protect Assets & Reduce Taxes

Trusts used to Avoid Probate
Trusts are created every day by savvy people who choose to prevent unnecessary and expensive Probate, protect property and other assets from creditors, and reduce taxes. Living Trusts, as the name implies, have the power to protect individuals and their families while alive, and ensures that ones survivors will be well-protected when the trust creator dies.

Why would anyone choose to have a government-paid judge get involved in deciding what and how much each of their heirs or kids get in the event of their death — in a public forum — in a downtown LA courtroom?
