New Video: “The Different Types of Trust in Texas: A Video Guide”

Check out the video below in which Texas trust attorney Isaac Shutt discusses the most common types of trust in Texas.


What are the main types of trusts in Texas?” Isaac expertly dissects the world of trusts into two primary branches: revocable trusts and irrevocable trusts.


Revocable Trusts: These are the go-to option for most individuals seeking estate planning solutions. Isaac highlights their popularity due to the privacy they offer, avoidance of will probate, and overall cost-effectiveness. A revocable trust essentially functions as an alternative to a last will and testament.

Irrevocable Trusts: While less common, these trusts serve specific purposes, particularly for wealthier clients with complex financial needs. They are ideal for scenarios involving special tax planning, providing for special needs beneficiaries, or optimizing charitable giving while gaining tax benefits.

Customization is Key: Isaac emphasizes that estate planning, much like medicine, isn’t one-size-fits-all.
