When you have worked hard your entire life and acquired assets along the way, you want to be in charge of how your assets are distributed after you pass away. Drafting a Will is just one of the ways in which we can help you remain in control of this process and let your loved ones know what your wishes are.


When a loved one has died in New York, you will have to deal with the complicated probate process in order to distribute his or her assets. We can efficiently administer the estate and guide you through all stages of the probate process, including those involving:

  • Locating the Will​

  • Filing all required documents

  • Assignment of executors

  • Location of heirs

  • Obtaining death certificates

  • Inventory of assets

  • Determining creditors

  • Property transfer

In addition to administering estates, we also represent clients in cases involving contested Wills.
