Wills & Trusts

What is a trust?

An agreement to accept property and hold it for another person is considered a trust.

What is a will?

A written document that leaves instructions for your heirs is considered a will. A will serves three purposes. First, it appoints a personal representative. Second, it allows you to designate a guardian for your minor children. Third, it describes what each of your heirs will receive as their inheritance.

Trying to decide between creating a will or a trust?

Our experienced Utah estate planning team will help you determine what structure is best for your estate plan.
