Trust and Estate Services

As you grow your wealth or when you acquire substantial assets, determining how they’ll be managed during your lifetime, and then protected and distributed when you pass on, requires thoughtful consideration and careful planning. At Midland, we offer experienced estate planning advice and administration — as well as customized trust management for individuals, families, institutions, foundations and endowments. Our experienced trust and estate professionals work with you to consolidate and manage your trust and estate needs, addressing a broad range of concerns, from reducing taxes to maximizing income for your beneficiaries. We offer a variety of estate planning services as they relate to wills, powers of attorney, corporate executorships, the disposition of your assets and the settlement of your estate.

While we don’t take the place of your attorney or accountant, we can act as a trusted member on your team of advisors.
