New York Attorneys Are Experienced with Wills and Estate Planning
Ensuring an orderly distribution of your assets
After a death, emotions run high, and members of the deceased’s family cannot be expected to think clearly. The division of the deceased’s assets can create family disputes — unless there’s a solid estate plan in place that specifies how the property is to be distributed. At Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, our attorneys can draft a last will and testament that’s designed to withstand challenges. We create a plan that gives you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your assets ultimately will be divided exactly as you wished.
The benefits of a solid estate plan
It’s never too early to create a will and establish an estate plan. You can always revise the plan as circumstances change. Among the issues early planning helps avoid are:
- Probate. If you die without a will in New York, your estate immediately goes into probate, a process that can take months. In probate, a judge decides how your property is divided.
- Disputes. In the absence of a solid estate plan, your relatives may begin fighting over who gets what. Such conflicts can damage family harmony and even result in ugly litigation.
- Taxes. The federal and state governments can tax your estate, but the wise use of gifts and trusts can minimize the taxes your estate will pay.
A compassionate legal team to meet your needs
Our lawyers can set up trusts that protect your loved ones’ financial interests and help them reduce the taxes on the estate. We also offer guidance with end-of-life directives, including medical proxies and living wills.
