It’s all in the name. According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of “will” includes desire, choice and determination.

With decades of experience in New York Elder Law, our skilled and highly regarded attorneys at Pfeifer & Choi PLLC have been dedicated to protecting the decisions of our clients. Our compassionate New York Elder Law lawyers can provide the legal counsel necessary to express your final wishes and enable them to be honored.

A will is a document that establishes your wishes in a legal format. The key component of an effective estate plan, a will provides a lawful record of whom you wish to inherit your assets as well as who will administer your estate. A will is your final voice, allowing you to specify who will receive your estate and who will administer it.

  • Appointing a guardian for a minor child
