Our probate attorneys at Diaz Law Offices provide legal counseling and guidance on numerous matters relating to trust and estate matters.

A will is a document that plans for the disposition of your assets to your beneficiaries.   Your beneficiaries can be family, friends, organizations, or even charities.  As part of your will, you will name an executor or executors.  The executor will be responsible for the gathering of your assets, paying any valid claims, and distributing your assets according to your wishes.  It can also appoint a guardian for any minor children.  However, other parts of your estate plan may include among other things such as:

  • Power of Attorney for Property
  • Power of Attorney for Health Care or a Trust

Legal Assistance in Greenville IL


Trusts are agreements that create a separate legal entity to take legal title to the assets placed in it.  The trust is managed by a trustee for the benefit of one or more named beneficiaries.  A trust can help control the trust property and the manner in which it is distributed at your death.  A trust can also control or limit the disposition of assets to beneficiaries who may be immature in age or suffering a legal disability.  Trust can also help avoid probate.
