FIDUCIARY MANAGEMENT: THE WHY, THE WHO AND THE HOW
Why Fiduciary Care is Necessary and Who Can Benefit
Marchi Smith & Levin (MSL) delivers a unique blend of financial and personal care management for those who cannot oversee their own affairs, such as seniors in cognitive decline and those with special needs who may be impaired. Alternatively, children and other trust beneficiaries may require a neutral and professional trustee. Families may need assistance settling the estate of a deceased loved one.
Individuals and families look to MSL when no family member or friend is available who possesses the required skills and organization to provide effective care for their loved one; when no individuals have time to undertake this role; when a neutral presence is necessary in a conflict-prone situation; or when a professional is needed who understands the fiduciary rules and can marshal the resources for managing financial and/or personal care for a loved one in the Bay Area and in California.
