Everybody Needs a Will And Estate Lawyers Play a Crucial Role

New York Estate lawyers help their clients in many ways. To begin with, it is important that Will and Trust documents are prepared to reflect a client’s desires. When a person dies without a Will and no provision has been otherwise made for the disposition of the decedent’s assets, the State statutes determine the beneficiaries of the estate.

Also, in the event of a death, an attorney can assist with the probate or administration process and the various procedures in the Surrogate’s Court involving decedent’s estates.

I have many years of experience working to advise my clients in the planning and creation of their Wills and Trusts. I work to make sure that my clients plans are both sound and are in accordance with their wishes. I have also helped many clients with probate and estate matters.

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.

Client Reviews
Jules Haas helped me with managing the process in probate court for my father's estate through to its completion upon the sale of my father's house. He was knowledgeable, efficient, and effective in submitting documentation to the probate court, explaining procedures to me, and advising me as to the progress of my case. His support staff was also very helpful. He made what for me created so much anxiety into something manageable where I could see progress every step of the way. His fees were very reasonable. I am super grateful to him for all the help he has provided and strongly recommend his services.
