Wills & Trusts
Regardless of how much or how little you think you have, you need an estate plan. Without fundamental tools like a will, powers of attorney or a trust, your family stands to suffer loss and experience unnecessary stress and conflict when you pass away or if you become incapacitated. These problems are 100 percent preventable.
At COHEN & COHEN PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS, P.C., based in Forest Hills, we help families develop comprehensive estate plans that take into account every aspect of their personal and financial lives. For many of our clients, wills and trusts are the central features of their estate plans, though many other instruments can be used to ensure that their wishes are honored both in life and after their passing. In many cases, a will and/or a trust, when appropriate, will enable a family to avoid probate entirely.
Make Sure It’s Done Properly The First Time
Our estate planning lawyers are highly experienced professionals who stay current on the state, federal and local laws that bear on their estate work. In preparing your estate documents, we will make sure your will or trust is done properly the first time, complying with all applicable New York state laws. Founding attorney Albert Cohen, a member of the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys, leads a team of estate planning attorneys with substantial knowledge about essential planning tools, including:
- Living wills and health care directives
- Powers of attorney, which allow you to designate who will handle your affairs if you are unable to
- Living Trusts, to more easily pass your assets on to your loved ones and potentially protect them from Nursing Home costs
Every estate plan is different. We welcome the opportunity to work with you and your family on a plan that will work for you.
