Wills and Probate
Wills And Probate Proceedings Should not be Left to Chance
If you die without a will, State law provides a default will. Typically your spouse and children will take the property. If there is no spouse and no children, your parents may take the property, followed by any siblings, grandparents, and descendents of the grandparents. If no relations can be found, the property will eventually belong to the state. While this is orderly, it may be not what you wish or be in the best interest of those you love.
Wills and probate proceedings are typically handled in the New York Surrogate's Courts. I have over 25 years of experience working on wills and probate proceedings. I advise clients in the planing and creation of their wills. I work to make sure that the probate process proceeds smoothly and efficiently. I represent clients in matters concerning wills and probate throughout New York. I help my clients file court papers and administer the decedent's estate by providing full estate settlement services.
I was admitted to the New York State Bar in 1979 and admitted to the Supreme Court of the United States in 1982 after graduating in the top 10% of my class at The New England School of Law in Boston. I was admitted to the United States Court of Appeals, Second Circuit and the United States District Court, for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York. I started my own law practice in New York City in 1985.
