Estate Planning

Whether you have spent decades accumulating assets or are just beginning a career, starting a family or establishing a business enterprise, preparing a Last Will and Testament and developing an estate plan is a wise step, not only for your peace of mind, but also to protect your personal and business interests and the well-being of your family.

Affordable attorney Cynthia M. Burke offers legal services in multiple areas of law, including wills, trusts, estate planning and probate administration for clients in towns and communities across Long Island.

Our law firm’s expertise in estate planning and probate matters includes the following areas:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Estate Plans
  • Living Wills
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Guardianships
  • Probate

Estate planning lays out a scenario you want to take place with regard to your property, assets and your personal care, in the event you are unable to make decisions at some point in the future, or when you are no longer here to do so.

The process of probate administration validates a will/trust and places an estate plan into action. Through an executor named in a will/trust, or a court appointed personal representative (if a person dies without a will), an inventory of assets is compiled, appraised, debts and taxes are paid, and finally, remaining assets are distributed to the named beneficiaries.

It is important to remember, if you do not prepare a will, the state essentially writes one for you based on New York law. What happens to you, your property and children under 18 years of age, may not be what you would have chosen.

Let affordable lawyer Cynthia Burke provide you with legal services in New York and Long Island Counties.
