“The bestselling novel of 1961 was Allen Drury’s Advise and Consent. Millions of people read this 690-page political novel.

“The answer, in the vast majority of cases, is Yes! Some of the important things that a fully funded Living Trust can accomplish are the following: avoid Probate expenses and delay for assets titled to the trust, avoid Probate in another state if assets are titled to the trust and there is property owned in another state, allow successor trustee to handle finances in event of incapacity or incompetence of grantor(s) (people who made trust), succession planning for closely held business, provide for division of assets of married couple if estate is greater than $10,900,000, and bring together all assets in an organized manner.”
