Maui County Wills and Trusts Lawyer

A Maui Attorney for Revocable Living Trusts and Wills

In the event that you become disabled or pass away, you want your property to be distributed to the persons you choose and your children to be cared for by the guardian you designate. Well-drawn trusts and wills are powerful tools to this end.

I am Kyle B. Coffman, Attorney at Law, a Maui County wills and trusts attorney. Located in Wailuku, my law firm serves individuals, couples and families throughout the Hawaiian Islands. With nearly 24 years of legal experience, I know that every client faces unique challenges. Similarly, every person needs a tailored solution to their estate planning concerns.

I will take the time to understand your concerns and identify each of the potential legal issues you face. Then I will help you develop a comprehensive approach to enforce your wishes in the ultimate distribution of your property and assets.

Creating a Revocable Living Trust

Any real property can go into a revocable living trust. Examples of such property include:

  • Houses and real estate
  • Cars and boats
  • Bank accounts
  • Stocks and bonds

The trustee of a revocable living trust controls the property and can renovate, remodel, and mortgage it at will. Although a living trust is not an effective way to protect your property from creditors, it does have advantages, such as helping beneficiaries to avoid probate and inheritance taxes. I can help you determine if a living trust is right for you.

Creating a Last Will and Testament

I also help clients create last wills and testaments. Wills usually include all other personal property that is not covered by a living trust, such as jewelry, art collections and other assets without titles. Wills can also be used to establish guardianships for minor children.

In addition to creating wills, I review wills that clients have written themselves. If your intent in the will is unclear or if it does not meet the legal requirements, the will may be invalidated. That is why it is important to have an attorney review every will before it is executed.
