The Importance of Having an Estate Plan
It is never too early to draw up an estate plan.

Part of estate planning involves understanding the impact of estate taxes. Another important aspect is the drafting of legally sound documents to avoid probate issues. Our Long Island estate planning lawyers can provide sound guidance in creating or modifying an estate plan that ensures the distribution of assets according to your wishes.
Wills and Trusts
Wills and trusts are two of the most important components of an estate plan. A will is essential for ensuring that the assets of an estate will be end up in the hands of designated beneficiaries.
