Whether drafting a will or helping to administer a trust, attorneys appreciate the role of paralegals in estate planning and administration. Wills allow a person to dictate what will be done with his or her property after death. Estate planning is the strategy used to protect the property and money of the person prior to death. Trusts involve the administration of funds from an estate in a pre-determined fashion. Probate is the process of enforcing wills, estate planning, and established trusts through the courts.
A paralegal is involved in each and every one of these aspects of representation. Job opportunities for paralegals is growing, especially with the “Baby Boom” generation hitting retirement!
