I have read a number of articles that recommend using ROTH IRAs as estate planning tools. That said, I am looking into creating a trust for my ROTH IRA and making my son the beneficiary of this new trust (he is a young child).

I already have a separate trust covering my other assets of which my husband is the beneficiary and my son the contingent.

1. Does anyone recommend a particular legal team specializing in this (and yes, it takes a specialist, not your "garden variety" trusts and estate lawyers)
2. Are there any particular pitfalls or recommendations?
3. I just bought JK Lasser's book: "How to Protect Your Retirement Savings from the IRS" and it has a lot in there on my topic. Just thought I'd pass this along.

Thanks for any input
