Establishing Trusts in Dedham, Massachusetts

Norfolk County Trust Attorney

At the Law Office of Frederick N. Pellegrini, we firmly believe every client should establish a trust. Trusts are legal arrangements that allow a third party commonly referred to as a trustee to hold assets for beneficiaries. Our Dedham estate planning lawyers can help fund or retitle clients' assets into trusts, including bank accounts, investments, and life insurance policies.

Even if you have an estate plan and do not have a trust or trusts, your assets may be subject to creditors' claims and potential lawsuits. Items placed in certain types of trusts cannot be touched by most creditors and/or lawsuits, as well as the probate court. To learn what type of trust is beneficial for you, your family, and your small business, contact the Law Office of Frederick N. Pellegrini today!

Types and Benefits of Trusts

There are various types of trusts and depending on your assets and wishes; our Dedham estate planning attorneys can help you establish the best possible trust for you.

We can draft and review:

  • Special needs trusts
  • Living trusts
  • Family trusts
  • A/B trusts
  • Charitable trusts

We can also help create irrevocable and revocable trusts. When you place items into an irrevocable trust, you can no longer access said items; they are legally considered the trust's property, which means they are protected from potential creditors' threats and lawsuits. Assets in revocable trusts, however, can be removed by the trust's creator. Said assets in revocable trusts can also be claimed in a lawsuit or by creditors.
