Comprehensive Estate Planning Services

When someone passes away, if they have a valid Will, the property and wealth they have acquired during their lifetime will be disbursed according to the Will in accordance with New York State probate law. New York Surrogate’s Court (probate court) will rely on the provisions of your Will to appoint the Executor for your estate who will be responsible for administering your estate when you die.

To ensure your property and assets end up with whom you wish to receive them, you should establish a comprehensive Estate Plan. A good Estate Plan may use trusts that protect certain assets from the complexities of probate proceedings by removing them from your estate and placing them in the hands of a trustee. Trustees are legally obligated to manage and/or disburse trust property and assets for persons you designate as beneficiaries.

For those assets that are not held in a trust, the terms of your Will govern how they will be distributed during probate proceedings. If upon your death there exist assets in your estate and you do not have a valid Will, the laws of the State of New York will determine how these assets will be distributed among your heirs without regard to any wishes you may have otherwise preferred. Additionally, the same laws will determine who shall be the Administrator of your estate. So instead of your selection of an Executor, an Administrator will be appointed by the Court.

For parents of minor children your Will can designate who will be the Guardian of your children in the event of your passing while your children are still minors.

We offer the following Estate Planning services:

  • Preparing and drafting Wills
  • Interpreting existing Will provisions
