Finger Lakes Estate Planning Attorney
A will describes your final wishes. You choose who will receive your property, who will take care of your non-adult children, and any final arrangements for your death and funeral services.
A trust allows someone to hold your assets for the benefit of someone else. Trust property typically avoids probate and allows more control than a Will. Some types of trusts can shield your assets from taxes, creditors, and preserve government benefits.
When a loved one dies, their property passes to their estate. In order to transfer property from an estate to the beneficiary, there may need to be a Probate or Administration proceeding filed with the Surrogate's Court. We represent clients in all facets of estate proceedings.
We represent buyers, sellers, and lenders in residential and commercial real estate transactions.
We represent landlords and tenants in residential eviction matters.
