Planning for Your Future
For more than 30 years, I have served residents of Rochester, New York, who needed assistance with both estate planning and estate settlement. I have been able to help my clients by providing them the legal insight and the tools they need to make important decisions in their lives about health care, family and estate matters.
Let me assist you with taking a proactive approach to your future. I can help you:
- Draft a will: A will can help you make your wishes known about how your estate should be divided upon your death, how personal and health care decisions should be made, protect your assets, minimize your estate taxes and probate expenses, and it can make it clear who should carry out your wishes during your lifetime and after your death.
- Appoint a power of attorney: When you appoint a power of attorney, you are giving legal authority to someone you trust who will be able to make personal, financial and legal decisions on your behalf in the event you become incapacitated or if you are unavailable to make those actions.
- Prepare a health care proxy: By preparing a health care proxy, or directive, you can state in writing your health care wishes in the chance you become incapacitated and are unable to make decisions. This document also allows you to appoint a person to express your wishes and directions you may have regarding your own health care.
Rochester Estate Settlement
Additionally, I can assist in settling the estate of your loved one after his/her death. This means that I can assist with the selling the estate property, gathering of assets, paying off creditors, and helping distribute the rest of the estate to the beneficiaries.
I invite you to call my office to set up a consultation regarding your estate planning and estate settlement needs. I am confident that together, we can work out a beneficial plan customized to you and your loved ones.
