ESTATE PLANNING LAWYER IN STATEN ISLAND, NY

I work with individuals and families to devise a valid estate plan to protect your assets and loved ones.   We can create a personalized estate plan including wills, trusts, power of attorney, and healthcare directives to give you peace of mind that you have done everything to protect those that you love and alleviate some of the stress in an already emotional situation.

We offer the following services:

  • Last Will and Testaments

  • Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts

  • Life Estate Deeds

  • Asset Transfers

  • Living Wills and Healthcare Proxies

  • Durable Power of Attorney

  • Medicaid Planning

  • Planning for blended families and LGBT couples

could you benefit from estate planning:

  • Are you estranged from your children? Do you wish to disinherit a child? or wish to give one child more than another?- If yes, then you need to consult with an attorney to discuss your estate planning options.

  • Are any of your children disabled or collecting government benefits? If yes, then you should consult with an attorney to discuss options to pass on your legacy to your child without disqualifying them from receiving benefits.

  • Is it your wish to leave part of your estate to a charity? If yes, then you need to consult with an attorney to discuss your estate planning options.

  • Is the value of your estate above the New York State Estate Tax Threshold, which for 2019, is $5,740,000.00 (Federal threshold is $11,200,000.00 for 2018)? If yes, then you need to consult with an attorney to discuss your estate planning options.

  • Do you wish to leave part of your estate to someone other than a family member or someone who would be entitled to a distribution under the NY EPTL? If yes, then you need to consult with an attorney to discuss your estate planning options.

    *** In New York, the only person you cannot entirely disinherit is your spouse. Spouses can only be disinherited where there is a legal agreement between both spouses “waiving” their respective rights to the other’s estate.
