I've heard so many horror stories of family members who are trustees, either walking away with the family pot of gold, or being shackled by their siblings because they sold mom's old car that no longer ran off the driveway. Seriously though, I'm wondering for myself, which would be better, I'm thinking attorney. Yes there would be fees, but it might be worth not having the grief otherwise. How does a trust work beginning to end with an attorney as your trustee? How are complaints dealt with and resolved for family members by the trustee when it's an attorney? Opinions and experiences please. I'm in MO.
