Trust & Estate

Trusts & Estates go hand-in-hand when you want to protect and preserve your assets and property. Minnesota Estate Lawyers at the Minneapolis, MN, law firm of Speeter & Johnson will draft legal documents for you that will withstand challenges and make sure that your wishes are followed after death or during incapacity. Everyone needs estate planning, no matter how large or small their asset and property holdings are. Living and Testamentary Trusts are the proven and preferred choice of many people.

Speeter & Johnson

Our law firm has helped clients solve legal matters since its founding in 1952, by attorneys Robert L. Speeter and Vincent E. Johnson. Today, our family firm includes eight lawyers who are dedicated to providing cost-effective, professional and personalized legal services. We enjoy helping Minnesota clients set up estate planning documents, including trusts that protect and preserve the inheritance they want to pass along to their family members.

Living trusts are an excellent way to accomplish this goal, as well as to provide protection for you if you are ever incapacitated and not able to manage your own financial affairs. If you die without a will or trust, or you are incapacitated, your estate matters go to Probate Court, where a Judge will appoint strangers to administer your estate. Those administrators will have no idea about how you want your estate managed or distributed to heirs. If you have a trust established, it can direct the financial affairs of your estate, help reduce taxes for heirs and more. Trusts options include revocable, irrevocable, generation-skipping and more.

Minnesota Estate Lawyers

People select the law firm of Speeter & Johnson when they want legal representation and advice from experienced Minnesota Estate Lawyers who understand family dynamics. We are a close-knit family firm and are pleased to help other families with their legal matters. There is nothing worse than a family fight over an estate or about who gets to handle matters when the head of the family is unable to do so for any period of time.

By establishing a Trust, you know that your wishes will be followed by all trust administrators. Trusts can be revocable, allowing changes as needed over time. If a parent is disabled or incapacitated, their Living Trust administrators will direct management of assets and property. We also consult with many court-appointed trust administrators, to ensure that their duties are properly executed.
