Serving South Dakota For More Than 120 Years

Founded five years after South Dakota was accepted as the 40th state in the Union, the Sioux Falls firm of Christopherson, Anderson, Paulson & Fideler, LLP, has thrived for more than 120 years. During that time, we have learned how to provide our clients with long-term legal solutions.

For that reason, generations of families have depended on the judgment of our firm's attorneys when determining how to protect their assets through the use of trusts. They know we understand how to successfully create and update trusts while also observing the unique considerations of each different family.

Creating Trusts And Updating Old Trusts

South Dakota has some of the most trust-friendly laws in the country. We focus on creating trusts to match your specific needs and goals, including:

  • Revocable or irrevocable trusts
  • Asset protection trusts
  • Special-needs trusts
  • Decanting trusts
  • South Dakota special spousal trusts
  • Amending trusts

We also regularly receive calls for help from clients both in and outside of the state who want to update old-fashioned trusts to match current legislation and take advantage of current protections. Our lawyers also regularly draft trust opinion letters as part of this process.

Our firm has delivered these services for generations by focusing on what makes each family different. The personalized service we provide means we take the time to get to know you and your family, to learn your family's needs, so we can advise you wisely. Not only do we aim to meet your legal needs now, but we also work to position your family for future success.
