Estate Planning & Asset Protection


Estate & Medicaid Support

A well-prepared and executed Estate Plan is essential to create a safe harbor for your financial future. Estate Planning establishes who will be in control of your estate and to whom your assets will pass and designates a trusted person to make medical and/or financial decisions on your behalf if you can longer do so yourself. In addition, an Estate Plan can prepare you for the option to utilize the Medicaid program to pay for long-term care expenses. We can prepare all manner of wills, living trusts, powers of attorney, health care proxies and living wills to shield your estate from taxes, provide for minor or disabled children or grandchildren or to otherwise fit your specific needs.

Trust & Estate Administration

When a loved on passes away, we provide guidance as to transferring assets of the Trust or Estate as efficiently as possible. A deceased person’s Last Will and Testament must be “probated,” which is the legal proceeding necessary to have the Will validated by the Surrogate’s Court and an Executor appointed. Those who pass without a Will are referred to as “intestate,” and thus and Administration proceeding is required to allow the next of kin to gain access to the finances of the deceased. After the Court appoints an Executor or Administrator, the next step is to collect assets, pay creditors and distribute the remainder of the Estate assets to the beneficiaries.


Trusts are administered pursuant to the terms of the Trust instrument itself, and therefore a court proceeding may not be required. Assets transferred to a trust avoid the probate, and often make the transfer of assets to the Trust beneficiaries that much easier. Trustees are charged with the task of collecting the Trust assets, paying outstanding debts and distributing the remainder of the trust assets to the Trust beneficiaries.

Real Estate Law

Whether you are looking to purchase a residence or commercial property, we can ensure that the transaction is conducted smoothly and efficiently. If any of your assets are comprised of residential and commercial real estate, we can represent you in the purchase, sale, gifting and transfer of same, as well as interests in entities which own real estate.

Specializing in Asset Protection, we believe that protecting yourself and your loved ones from creditors is a necessary undertaking no matter the size of your estate.
