The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, Provides Valuable Information When Selecting An Estate Plan Trustee.

Shannon Pawley, The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, offers a brief overview of the qualities to look for in the person selected for trustee roles and responsibilities.

DECATUR, GA, February ••, 2024: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “The Qualities To Look For In An Estate Plan Trustee,” in which Ms. Pawley provides a guide to use for selecting the most appropriate trustee.

“At some point in your life,” Pawley writes, “you will hopefully create an estate plan. I encourage this be done sooner rather than later.” She continues, “Many estate plans include at least one trust and often a variety of different trusts. When you establish an estate plan, you will need to name someone as your trustee. This is a person who will have several responsibilities.” Pawley adds, “Among the many responsibilities a trustee has, there are several that include financial responsibilities. To help you in your decision-making process, I’ve outlined the main qualities to look for when selecting your trustee.”

According to Pawley, “Very often people will consider a family member or friend for this role.” She follows this up with, “You may change your mind after reading this article, and as you realize that depending on the size and type of your estate and assets, your trustee must be someone who has good organizational skills.” She emphasizes, “A trustee must gather assets, safeguard, and manage them, as well as make distributions according to the terms of the trust. So, remember that record-keeping and organizational skills are important.”

Among the many qualities Pawley highlights include honesty, willingness to commit and reliability, and impartiality.
