Protect Your Home and Life Savings
Asset Protection Trusts will protect your home and life savings from long term care costs. Additionally, they will help protect your heirs from high probate fees after you are gone, saving time and money. The average cost of probate in New York State is between 3-7% of your total assets (i.e. a simple estate valuing $400,000 would equal $20,000 in probate fees if the assets are not in a trust).Contact Us

When you have people in your life that you care about, it is important to have a will to ensure that they receive the assets you want them to have. In addition to your money, a will governs who receives ownership of your home as well as other material things. wills can also stop the court from giving money to members of your family to whom you do not want the money to go, and a will can also help you set aside funds for any beneficiaries until they come of age.
If you already have a will but it needs some updating, it is a good idea to call our office. Keeping it up-to-date with life changes is very important; changes such as after the birth of a child or grandchild, a divorce or death within the family, buying or selling a home or business, or any other situation that changes your financial footprint for good or for bad. Without an accurate, up-to-date will, you are leaving your assets up to chance. But you can take control and eliminate the risk of loss by planning ahead.
Your unique needs and financial situation requires a unique trust. Our attorney has helped many people create trusts that were right for their lives.
Trusts may be a good option for people who wish to limit their liabilities while they are still alive, and it may be a good option for people who want to avoid probate altogether. It’s a financial arrangement where a person transfers their assets out of their name and into a trust, which is managed by a third party. This third party (the trustee) acts in accordance with the instructions set in place during the formation of the trust as they hold and distribute the assets of the trust to the named beneficiaries.
Our attorney has helped many people create trusts that were right for their lives. With our assistance, it is possible to exert as much control over your last wishes as you want.
