Albuquerque Trust Administration Attorney Guides Successor Trustees

New Mexico lawyer provides legal services to clients managing trusts

Once a grantor establishes a trust, either they or a trustworthy fiduciary must act as trustee for the trust assets. When the grantor dies, a trustee named in the trust documents must act as administrator, seeing to necessary tasks according to state law and the terms of the trust. Trust administration requires careful attention to each detail of the grantor’s wishes, as well as sound legal advice to avoid missteps for which a trustee can be held personally liable. Susan K. Tomita acts as administrator and provides reliable legal guidance to trust administrators. I have ample experience in both roles on a wide variety of trusts, including:

  • Credit Shelter Trusts (CST)
  • Incentive trusts
  • Living trusts
  • Generation-skipping trusts
  • Qualified Terminable Interest Property (QTIP) trusts
  • Qualified Personal Residence Trust (QPRT )
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Irrevocable life insurance trusts

Susan K. Tomita provides highly ethical and reliable administration services to a variety of trusts, maintaining the fiscal strength of these entities to serve beneficiaries through the intended life of the trust.

Meticulous administrative services

I have capably managed all duties related to trust administration, including:

  • Communication with beneficiaries
  • Investment of assets
  • Management of assets, including real property
  • Collection from debtors and payment of creditors
  • Preparation of accountings
  • Preparation of tax returns
  • Distributions to beneficiaries

In the exercise of these duties, I proceed in good faith according to state law and the grantor’s desires as expressed in the trust’s documents.

Sound advice to trustees

A trustee can be personally liable for mistakes or omissions that result in losses for the trust. I offer sound advice to trustees to ensure accurate and complete compliance with all aspects of trust administration. If you have been named a trustee, I strongly recommend that you retain professional assistance from a trustworthy source.
