Estate Planning

Estate Planning

There is more to estate planning than designating how your assets are to be distributed after your death. It also includes preserving your assets, ensuring you have a plan in place if you should be unable to work due to illness or injury, and perhaps most importantly, providing for guardians for your children and the property you leave to them.

Our firm has assisted many clients with estate planning and wealth preservation. We also handle probate and administration proceedings for clients throughout Long Island and in New York City.

Estate Planning, Wills, and Trusts

Regardless of what stage of life you find yourself in, it is always prudent to have a plan for what happens in the event of your death or incapacity.  Our attorneys can help you evaluate your assets and formulate an estate plan which utilizes wills, trusts, gifts during your lifetime, healthcare proxies, etc. to minimize the burdens on your loved ones while taking care to follow th­­­e plan you desire for your assets. Any time you face a significant life change, your estate plan should be reviewed, and updated if necessary.

Estate Administration and Probate Litigation

Being left to handle the estate of a loved one can be overwhelming. Unfortunately, there are circumstances where there is no will, multiple wills, or a family member contests a will.  These can be very difficult to deal with, especially right after the loss of a loved one.  Our attorneys have extensive estate litigation experience and can assist you to understand your rights and options and also to represent your interests in the negotiation or litigation of the issues of your particular case. We understand how difficult this time can be for you and we will do everything possible to help you through this process.
