The Purpose of an Irrevocable Trust

An irrevocable trust is a trust that cannot be modified or terminated without the beneficiary’s permission. This type of trust is generally used for tax purposes. In establishing an irrevocable trust the grantor, the person making the trust, transfers ownership of assets to the trust and can no longer be taxed on those assets.

Are You Planning on Creating an Irrevocable Trust?

Establishing an irrevocable trust is a significant undertaking and you will benefit from consulting a New Paltz trust lawyer. The lawyer can assess your situation and advise you if an irrevocable trust is in your best interest. The lawyer can write the trust’s provisions and ensure the trust conforms to your state’s applicable law.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

Points to Consider Before Hiring a Lawyer

Experience. Regardless of the type of legal matter you need help with, an experienced attorney will usually be able to get you better results.

Competence. Determine an attorney’s expertise by asking about their track record for the issue you need help with resolving.

Fit. There are plenty of good attorneys out there; make sure you find one you are comfortable working with.
