When a loved one becomes incapacitated and can no longer make sound decisions, you may want to consider guardianship to protect their best interests. Types of guardians include:
- Family members
- Friends or neighbors
- Private professional guardians (such as financial institutions)
- Public guardianship programs
Because the court ultimately determines whether or not guardianship is warranted, it is important to have a skilled guardianship attorney by your side to help you through the process.

Wills and Trusts
Your will is the primary legal document dictating the transfer of your assets to your beneficiaries. When a will is absent or unclear, disputes may arise, and assets may distributed according to the discretion of a judge. A trust is another legal document that may enable you to reduce federal or state estate taxes and smooth the process of distributing your estate according to your wishes. Our Brooklyn estate planning lawyers can draft your will and explain the benefits of various types of trusts.
