A family trust is a legal device that allows you to decide how and when to distribute any assets you own. Perhaps you want to make sure that, in the event of your death, your children have access to a certain amount of money when they start college. A trust can make that happen, but you need the help of a lawyer who understands trusts and estates to ensure that your wishes are carried out.

How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located near you?
