Queens, New York

Queens Probate

Of the five boroughs in New York City, Queens is the largest in terms of area (at 109 square miles) and is is the second largest borough in terms of population with 2.3 million residents. Forming the eastern boundary of the city and home to both LaGuardia and JFK International Airports, Queens is a major transportation hub. The borough also is a major center for sport, as Citi Field (home to the New York Mets of Major League Baseball) and Flushing Meadows Park (home to the U.S. Open tennis tournament) are both located in Queens. Queens is also home to world–famous watchmaker Bulova, piano manufacturer Steinway & Sons, and Glaceau (of Vitamin Water fame).

When a family member dies, there may be a whole host of others who have a legal interest in the decedent's estate. Under those circumstances, the New York state's Surrogate's Court has the job of sorting out the rights and obligations of all the parties involved. If you have become one such party, it is in your best interests to contact an experienced Queens probate and estate administration attorney. With access to your lawyers knowledge and skill, you can rest assured that your rights are being protected throughout the probate process.

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.
