Let's say the primary and secondary beneficiaries on the mutual funds are identical to what's in the trust. By naming the trust as a secondary beneificary the lawyer would act as a middle man and take a hefty cut, don't you think ?

What lawyer? Do you mean the probate lawyer would get a cut? Wouldn't he get a cut anyhow no matter who the beneficiary is?

I'm confused.
