Guideway Living Trusts
with Ian Duncan
A Living Trust is the legal document that outlines the way in which your assets will pass on to your loved ones when you die. When you prepare your Living Trust, you will identify your beneficiaries as well as the person who will carry out your wishes, your successor trustee.
There are many benefits to getting a Living Trust.

"I would like to thank Guideway for helping my family deal with issues surrounding my parents' estate. I could have never done it without their help. I was met with the kindness and courtesy. Brook Thurston was wonderful and I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone in need of legal documentation help."
"I came in expecting to have an appointment later in the week and I was helped right away. Guideway completed all my paperwork by late afternoon. It was great to get this all taken care of in one day at a very reasonable price! I highly recommend them!"
"We just received our official recorded documents from the County Recorder's office. Guideway provided the expertise, notary, and even took our signed documents and recording fee to the recorder's office. I rarely give a five-star review, but this place has been just amazing."
"We have previously used Guideway for their notary services and just used them to do our Living Trust. Corey Priest exceeded our expectations. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and patiently walked us through what everything meant."
"I worked with Ian Duncan of Guideway to assist me in my divorce proceeding. I was impressed by all of the staff's professionalism, efficiency, kindness and patience in this process. They made what could have been an unpleasant divorce experience actually quite manageable."
