New York Wills, Trusts and Estates Lawyer

Last Will and Testament

A valid legally enforceable Last Will and Testament (“Will”) insures that your intentions regarding the distribution of your assets upon your death will be followed. Many New Yorkers are under the mistaken belief that they can simply sign and notarize a letter or other document stating their instructions as to who will inherit their property. New York Wills and Estates Law requires that a Will satisfy specific technical requirements in order to be valid and enforceable. Rather than take the chance that your wishes will be ignored by the Surrogate’s Court, we strongly suggest that you hire an experienced New York Wills, Trusts and Estates Lawyer to draft your Will. Your intended beneficiaries will be thankful that they have been spared the uncertainty and expense of Surrogate’s Court litigation to determine who will receive your assets after death.

We invite you to contact us by phone, or click Wills, Trusts and Estates Questionnaire to tell us about your New York case or legal matter.

New York Living Will and Health Care Proxy

In addition to a properly prepared and legally executed Will to protect your loved ones, you might also want the added protection of a Living Will and Health Care Proxy. These documents can specifically state your intentions regarding whether or not to keep you alive on a respirator if there is no chance of recovery, whether you should spend your last days at home or in a hospital, as well as other important healthcare decisions and preferences. With a Health Care Proxy you can select a trusted friend or relative to make health care decisions for you, in the event that you are mentally or physically unable to make health care decisions for yourself, or are unable to express those decisions.

We invite you to contact us by phone, or click Wills, Trusts and Estates Questionnaire to tell us about your New York case or legal matter.

New York Power of Attorney

A New York Power of Attorney enables you to legally appoint a trusted family member, friend, or other individual who you select to sign legal documents on your behalf. A Power of Attorney may be useful if you have entered into a contract to purchase or sell real estate, and you will be traveling out of the country when the closing of title will take place. With a Power of Attorney, you can grant authority to your designated representative to sign legal documents on your behalf at the closing of title, and to pay or collect the required sums of money to complete the transaction on your behalf.

A New York Power of Attorney is a very powerful and potentially dangerous document. A New York Power of Attorney can be limited or broad, depending on the needs of the grantor of the Power of Attorney. We recommend that your Power of Attorney be carefully prepared to insure that it only grants the authority that you require and intend to convey, and that it be effective only for a limited period of time or for the particular transaction. Our experienced New York Wills, Trusts and Estates Lawyer can draft a New York Power of Attorney to meet youyr specific needs, without exposing you to unnecessary risk.
