Elder Law

Planning for the disposition of your assets is frequently an uncomfortable topic to discuss.  However, without a will or proper estate plan, your living wishes for the distribution of your estate will not be given weight and instead, your estate will be distributed according to a New York statutory formula.  Our office can help to memorialize your wishes to ensure that your intentions are reflected in proper testamentary instruments.

Through careful estate planning, you can ensure that your property is distributed according to your wishes.  A carefully drafted will can help prevent disputes over who inherits your property and who will become guardians of any minor children.  Through proper estate planning you may be able to avoid or reduce estate taxes, avoid probate, prevent will contest litigation, and avoid fights among family members.
