Westchester County, New York

Westchester County Probate

Westchester County is located north of New York City and shares its eastern border with the state of Connecticut. Home to almost one million residents, it is the second wealthiest county in New York and ranks seventh in the United States in median household income. Its two largest and most well–known cities are Yonkers and White Plains, and the entire county is one of the oldest suburbs of New York. Westchester has also been home to many famous residents, including captains of industry Nelson and John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and former President Bill Clinton and current Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Probate proceedings are complicated and intimidating, particularly for those who do not understand the laws that govern the probate process or its purpose. Probate is the process by which a person's will is examined and declared a valid and binding legal document. Because a will contain instructions to distribute the decedent's assets, the Surrogate's Court performs the will examination carefully to ensure that it has not been tampered with and is not fraudulent in any way to ensure that the decedent's wishes are accurately carried out.

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.
