If you are estate planning or find yourself as an executor, then the question of whether to hire a professional is a decision that you will have to make. Many elements will determine the outcome of this question, including considering the personal liability and time-consuming nature of the role. If you wish to establish a strong estate plan, then your will should give direction on how to share your wealth and can accommodate the inclusion of naming a corporate executor and corporate power of attorney.


Today, I reveal when you should consider hiring a professional executor or power of attorney. I share the roles that Trust Companies, lawyers, and accountants can play during your estate planning as well as once you become an angel. I highlight the instances when a Trust Company is a better hire than a lawyer and explain the advantages of hiring a Trust Company to assist you if you have become an executor.
