The Trustee Group, from its office in Los Angeles California, specializes in trustee and successor trustee appointments over private family estates. Our team of respected and experienced professionals offer you piece of mind knowing we will carry out your wishes in overseeing the management and administration of your home, businesses, real estate, personal property, assets, contracts, insurance, investments, charities, and funds.
When estate planning, you can name one of our experienced and trusted trustees to administer your trust. They can commence work administering your trust either pre or post passing. By working with you pre-passing, we will talk with you, your legal counsel, and your tax advisor to better understand your goals with regards to your trust.
Sometimes, a family member is named as the trustee. When establishing a trust this might initially seem like a good idea, but often it turns out causing resentment amongst other family members or the named family member does not have the right experience to handle the intricacies of administering the trust. Appointing one of our professional trustees to administer your trust improves the chances of keeping the peace and harmony amongst family members and assures your trust will be administered in a professional manner. Our professional trustees know how to listen to and be sensitive to the issues and concerns of all family members. However, we are also the leader who will make the decisions in accordance with the trust document and your wishes.
In the past, families may have turned to a large bank or the attorney who drafted their trust to be their trustee. Large banks are impersonal and often do not have the ability to run your home or oversee your businesses. They are usually handling the trust as a courtesy just to obtain your funds on deposit. Attorneys who draft trusts may have a conflict of interests and also lack the experience of overseeing your home or businesses. At The Trustee Group we have the experience and resources to protect your home and businesses.
