NEW YORK CITY ESTATE LITIGATION – I fight hard to help my clients get the most out of a New York estate. When someone is unhappy with their share of inheritance or not satisfied with the way the estate is being handled, I am here to protect your interests and we do our absolute best to win your case. This is what people usually ask me:
- How Do I Win a New York Will Contest?

- When Can an Estate Executor Be Removed?

- How Do I Resolve an Estate Disagreement?

CLOSING NEW YORK CITY ESTATES – I help administrators and executors close out and settle New York estates in administration and probate proceedings. I also help beneficiaries keep an eye on the executor to make sure that the estate is closed out in a clean and efficient way. My knowledge of the court system allows me to close and settle matters in New York Surrogate’s Court without unneeded expenses and delays. This is what people usually ask me about probate:

NEW YORK CITY ESTATE PLANNING – I recommend wills for younger clients and trusts for middle-aged and older clients. Wills are great because they are so quick to make. Trusts have some benefits, such as protecting the inheritance from the recipients’ spouses and creditors, save money on estate taxes and avoid the asset freeze that happens when a court is involved in an estate. Trusts also add limitations, and as such, should be used carefully. This is what people usually ask me about NYC estate planning:
- How Do I Save on Estate Taxes?
- What are the Benefits of an Attorney-Drafted Will?
- What are the Benefits of a Trust?
- How Do I plan for a Disabled Child?
- How Do I Plan for My Own Disability?
- What Are Some of the Advanced Estate Plans?
