Just like I can hold title to a bank account as Christopher S. Mulvaney, individually, or as Christopher S. Mulvaney, President MULVANEY LAW OFFICES, PLLC, you can hold title in your name individually or in your name as Trustee of your Trust. The difference is in the legal rights involved.
If I sign a contract as President promising to pay a debt, then I am binding the company to pay. If I sign as an individual person, then I am binding myself to pay. If you sign a contract as Trustee of your Trust you are giving your Successor Trustee the right to step into your shoes and exercise your rights if you become incapacitated or pass away, without having to be appointed your Guardian if you are living or Executor of your Estate if you have passed.
