We know that each client has different estate planning goals, and we take the time to develop a plan to help them achieve those goals with wills and trusts.

What A Will Can Offer You

Without a will, your assets will be divided up according to the state of New York’s rules within the probate process. Creating your own will allows you much more control over the entire process, and ensures that your loved ones receive what you intended for them.

Wills allow you to specify who will receive what when you pass on, avoiding any opportunity for the wrong person to inherit your assets. Properly creating and executing a will with the help of an estate planning attorney can also limit the risks of someone challenging the will as well.

The Benefits Of A Trust

A proper irrevocable trust has the potential to save the grantor, or creator of the trust, both time and money. Once created, an irrevocable trust has limited capacity to be amended or modified, preserving the original wishes of the grantor. There are several distinct advantages to creating this type of trust, including minimizing inheritance taxes your beneficiaries will pay, offering potential tax-shelter benefits and helping beneficiaries qualify for government benefits like Medicaid.
