Long Island Estate Planning Attorneys Serving Suffolk County, NY
A lawyer helps protect your family — now and into the future
Whether you have an estate worth millions of dollars or a family home and moderate savings and investments that represent a lifetime of hard work, it is important to take action to protect your assets — now and into the future. Estate planning involves setting up the proper legal instruments to distribute your assets to your intended beneficiaries, without undue tax or legal complications.
The estate planning attorneys at Jakubowski, Robertson, Maffei, Goldsmith & Tartaglia, LLP help clients in Suffolk County, in Kings County and across Long Island make vital decisions about financial and health concerns. We provide compassionate support to loved ones who are dealing with probate and other issues.
Assistance with all estate planning issues
Many vital issues must be addressed when developing comprehensive estate plans. Our experienced attorneys assist clients in many areas, including the following:
- Wills and trusts: Although wills serve to identify how you want to distribute your assets among beneficiaries, trusts can reduce or eliminate the need for heirs to go through the probate process. Our attorneys help determine if trusts make sense for your estate, and we guide you through a potentially complex setup and maintenance process.
- Powers of attorney: We help clients designate appropriate individuals to make financial choices, in the event that they can no longer make decisions on their own.
- Health care directives: We help clients develop health care proxies and living wills. These documents enable them to designate trusted individuals to make health care decisions in emergencies and inform medical providers about their preferences concerning the use of life-prolonging medical treatments.
- Probate support: Our firm has dedicated personnel who can probate the estate of a loved one in a compassionate and efficient manner.
Experienced legal advice makes a difference in the estate planning process
Each individual has unique financial and personal issues that require consideration during the estate planning process. While the advice provided by reputable online sources, such as CNN Money website, can help you organize your information for an effective estate plan, it cannot enable you to adapt to ever-changing rules and tax laws. Our skilled lawyers understand the current laws and know what future changes to anticipate, and we use all this information when creating and maintaining your estate plan. We take a personalized approach, ensuring that you have an estate plan that protects your loved ones well into the future.
