New York Estate Planning Lawyers

Estate planning in New York requires more than preparing a will. The planning process is comprehensive, and it accomplishes several different goals. We seek to provide you the opportunity to make your wishes known, determine who will carry out your wishes both during your lifetime and after your death and allow you to maintain independence and control over personal, health care and financial decisions. Together, we can protect your assets from the cost of long-term care, help minimize your estate taxes and the expenses associated with probate, and ensure that your estate assets are distributed according to your wishes.

Our estate planning attorneys can assist you with preparing a will and any necessary trusts to distribute your assets in accordance with your wishes after your passing. We can also put advance health care directives in place by helping you appoint a health care proxy and prepare a living will. Our attorneys are well-versed in durable powers of attorney, irrevocable trusts and all manner of other options and considerations for comprehensive estate planning. We can offer assistance with marital and family bypass trusts, lifetime and testamentary trusts, charitable and grantor retained interest trusts, family limited partnerships and 401(k) and IRA retirement plans.
