Chelmsford, Massachusetts, Wills Attorney

Wills and trusts allow people to make clear determinations about how they want their assets to be handled.


A will can be a very useful tool for ensuring that your assets benefit those you love when you die. Failing to draft a will or use some other type of estate planning instrument means that your assets will be handled under intestacy laws. This means that crucial choices about your estate and who benefits from it will be in the hands of the state government.

Do not allow the state to have control over everything you have worked so hard for, draft a will that clearly shows your intent and how you mean to benefit your loved ones.


A trust can be an essential element of a comprehensive estate plan. Living trusts and educational trusts are just a few of the examples of the types of trusts you can incorporate into your estate plan. Trusts offer a number of advantages over wills that many people find attractive:

  • Trusts can minimize tax burdens.
  • Trusts are privately administered. There are no public records as when a will is probated.

We can help you clearly understand how a particular type of trust can serve your needs.
