Wills and Estates

Your specific needs and wishes are what must be considered when developing your estate plans.

Wills and Estate matters include but are not limited to:

  • A Will sets forth the manner in which your property is distributed upon your death. The Will may include directions as to the disposition of your remains. The Will can include provisions of appointment of guardians for your minor children.
  • A Trust is an appropriate vehicle to preserve assets and to avoid estate taxation. Assets held in trust avoid probate and can be transferred more rapidly, without waiting for Surrogate's court.
  • A Medical Health Care Proxy is an instrument that tells your doctors the care and treatment that you want administered at the time of what might be your final illness. This would include directions concerning DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) feeding tubes, and use of extraordinary measures to prolong life.
  • A Power of Attorney appoints someone to perform such duties that you yourself could do in the event that you are incapacitated.
  • Probate Matters involve designating an executor and/or administration of your estate
