Nassau County, New York

Nassau County Probate

Nassau County is located on the eastern end of Long Island in New York State, and is home to over 1.3 million people. As it is so close to New York city, many of its residents work in the city, and it is one of the most wealthy communities in the nation. The New York Islanders of the National Hockey League play their games in Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, and the world–class Bethpage Black Golf Course – which has hosted the U.S. Open golf tournament – are also located in Nassau County. The county is also an educational center and boasts several top flight universities including: Hofstra University, New York Institute of Technology, and the United States Merchant Marine Academy.

When you are going through the probate process, having access to the wisdom of an attorney who is intimately familiar with both the process and the laws it's governed by provides peace of mind. Which makes that type of knowledge invaluable –– particularly when you consider the difficulty of probate statute interpretation for those who are not legally trained. Knowing you're well represented at probate proceedings and can trust your attorney to handle the necessary paperwork allows you to focus on more important things, like family.

The probate proceedings play out in the Surrogate's Court in New York state, and that court deals with issues ranging from those regarding will interpretation and validation to those about estate settlement. By retaining a Nassau County probate attorney you give yourself the best chance possible to protect your interests when the time comes for the decedent's estate's assets to be distributed. Not only that, but after the assets have been apportioned, your attorney can give you tax advice to make sure your inheritance is maximized.

My office is located at 845 Third Avenue, Suite 1400 in New York and is easily accessible from Long Island by car via the Queensboro Bridge and the Mid–town Tunnel. Meetings at offices in Nassau County are available by appointment, as well.

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.
