Probate

Manhattan is one of the five boroughs of New York City, and is considered by many to be the center of commerce for the western world. Manhattan is home to an incredibly diverse population, in no small part due to its status as the entry point for millions of immigrants throughout our nation's history. Home to the New York Stock Exchange and Wall Street, Manhattan is one of the most important financial centers on earth and its residents are among the most wealthy people in the world. Manhattan isn't just about the financial district, however, as Central Park provides residents with access to one of the largest and most beautiful city green spaces in the country, and Manhattan Island is home to some of the finest art museums in the world.

When someone close to you passes away, the feelings of loss and sorrow can be devastating, and you don't need to deal with making the legal arrangements necessitated by New York probate laws by yourself. A trained Manhattan probate attorney can help with all of the financial concerns, tax implications, and legal issues that arise in probate. Attempting to prepare all of the necessary paperwork and understand the complex statutes that govern probate without the aid of a professional advocate may result in the case being mishandled. With proper legal advice, however, you can rest assured that your case will be handled win the most efficient means possible so that the probate process can be navigated quickly and painlessly.

In addition to probate services, an attorney can help if a loved one has been incapacitated through illness or accident. In such instances, New York law requires that guardianship proceedings be conducted in order to appoint a legal guardian to handle the finances and affairs of the incapacitated party. These types of proceedings can become quite contentious, and the aid of a knowledgeable advocate can ensure that the court makes a decision that is in the best interests of those involved.

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.
