Our Legal Services:
Wills are the heart of any estate plan, no matter the individual’s financial circumstances. Though there are many online will-writing kits, the truth is, you need an experienced Bay Shore estate planning attorney on your side who can properly prepare your possessions and assets in a will to ensure they are distributed according to your wishes upon your passing.
Trusts, very often, are created in conjunction with wills. Many people create either revocable or irrevocable trusts to help families avoid probate court and have beneficial tax implications for the beneficiaries in question.
The estate administration process begins once someone passes away. Various testamentary documents, such as trusts and wills, call for estate administrators who can ensure their directions are carried out as intended. If you were appointed as an executor or administrator, our firm can help.
Unfortunately, when people pass away, if they do not properly create valid and legally enforceable estate planning documents, disputes can easily arise between family members, beneficiaries, and otherwise. The process of resolving these disputes is known as estate litigation. We can help ensure these disputes are resolved both promptly and according to your loved one’s wishes.
