Protecting Your Future Beneficiaries
An unprotected estate can put the futures of your beneficiaries’ inheritances in peril. Without valid legal documents in place, New York State law will decide how to divide your assets and who will inherit them. A thorough estate plan can protect your bequests as well as alleviate some of their tax burdens.
We have the experience necessary to guide your estate plan to completion, reaching your goals and allowing your final wishes to be legally binding. Our New York Elder Law lawyers are prepared to discuss your situation and explain all of the options that are available to you. Many clients have placed their trust with us to protect them, their families, and their future. We strive to remain worthy of their trust.
To the parent or guardian of an individual with special needs, worries about their future care can be especially troublesome. Our sympathetic and skilled New York estate planning attorneys can provide the insightful legal counsel you need to plan for your loved one’s future.
