Experienced New York City Lawyer Drafts Authoritative Wills
Seasoned counselor helps clients distribute their assets efficiently
No matter your age or financial circumstances, creating a legal will is a necessary part of protecting your family members. With complex state and federal rules governing estates, effective counsel can help you avoid problems and transfer your assets efficiently. My firm, The Law Office of Don B. Panush, drafts and revises comprehensive wills for clients across the New York City area. I work closely with individuals and families to understand their goals and develop personalized documents that satisfy those objectives.
Respected firm provides comprehensive advice on all types of wills
Failing to create a legal will puts your intended beneficiaries in jeopardy. If you die without a will, the state’s intestacy laws decide how your assets will be distributed. To avoid intestacy and other problems, my firm assists with key tasks such as:
- Drafting a will tailored to your wishes — I work personally with each client to create a last will and testament that not only covers the necessary legal and financial details, but also serves as a fitting legacy. Whether you have tax concerns, need to address the transfer of a business or are looking to make a charitable bequest, I can help you develop a clear legal instrument that accomplishes your goals.
- Changing your instructions — Wills should be reviewed frequently to ensure that they reflect your current situation and priorities. If you haven’t examined the terms for a while, my firm can help you make any appropriate changes.
- Appointing a guardian — Parents of minor children and people who are responsible for disabled adults have an obligation to make solid guardianship plans. Though it can seem like a difficult conversation, I can help you evaluate potential guardians and set forth clear directions regarding the care of your loved ones if you are no longer around.
In a free consultation, we can discuss the type of document that will work best for you and the most cost-effective way to fulfill your intentions.
