Transcript - NYC Estate Planning Attorney

Hello my name is Jules Haas. I am a New York Attorney with over 30 years experience. My office is located in Manhattan. I have been representing clients throughout the New York metropolitan area, which includes Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Staten Island, Long Island, which is Nassau and Suffolk counties as well Westchester county and Rockland county. My practices encompasses a number of areas. These areas include trust and estates, which involve estate planning, probate, administration proceedings and various surrogate court matters and estate settlement. I also represent clients in connection with guardianship matters where a person becomes incapacitated, and I do a lot of representation with respect to real estate, which involve closings, for condominiums, cooperative apartments, single and multi-family residents, as well as estate litigation. Estate planning involves the creation of a will, health care proxy, living will, power of attorney, and a living trust. It is important for a person to consider the aspects of these various documents in connection with having their assets pass effectively to their beneficiaries and reflect the intent that they wish to have regarding the disposition of their assets. Another area that I practice extensively in concerns real estate. Many of my clients buy and sell real estate interests. These interests include cooperative apartments, condominiums and single or multi-family residents. And considering a real estate transaction, a person must first understand the type of property that they’re purchasing. Other things that need to be considered are mortgage contingencies, getting a mortgage, how the property is going to be owned, whether it’s going to be owned in a person’s name alone or possibly through some corporation, and also what needs to be done with buying the property as far as financing, and clearing title. Another area is guardianship proceedings. These are proceedings that are brought under Article 81 of the Mental Hygiene law. These cases involved issues where a person may become incapacitated due to an illness, old age, such as dementia, or some other accident that might have affected their ability to handle their affairs. Contact me if you have any concerns or issues with respect to areas of law in which I practice. I have a blog entitled New York Probate Lawyer blog which provides a lot of information concerning estate planning, surrogate’s court matters, probate and guardianship. My website also contains a lot of information with respect to these issues. I look forward to hearing from you.
