I am an inheritance lawyer with almost a decade of experience. I practice in in New York City, with court appearances all over the five boroughs – Manhattan, Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island. I also do some work in Westchester County, Nassau County and Suffolk County.
My practice involves all matters having to do with estates, such as:
- estate planning, making sure that a client’s estate goes to the people whom the client intends to inherit the property
- estate probate and administration, helping clients collect all the assets, pay the creditors and distribute the assets to the heirs
- litigation on behalf of people who have the right to receive an inheritance – contesting wills, disagreements over who gets what, allegations of executor or administrator stealing inheritance that is not rightfully theirs, not distributing the property correctly or not distributing the inheritance fast enough
- litigation on behalf of people who are charged with managing inheritance – defending wills, putting an end to disagreements over inheritance distributions, defending against allegations of stealing from the estate
I enjoy my job. Helping people deal with estates is my passion. Believe it or not, being an inheritance lawyer what I do for fun! I draft documents, talk to clients and send emails after I come home from work.
I treat my client like family. I’m available at all hours, and make sure that all of my clients’ needs are met, questions answered, documents done, and their goals are on the way to getting accomplished, whether it’s making a will or a trust, closing up probate of an estate, or winning inheritance litigation case.
If you are an executor who wishes to protect the estate you’re charged with from unreasonable claims, I can help you fight back and preserve the plan of the person who has set up the estate. A beneficiary who feels being cheated out of an inheritance? I can help you get the property you deserve. An executor or administrator who wishes to quickly and efficiently probate an estate? I can help you with that. If you would like to make a will or a trust and make sure that your estate goes to the people whom you want it to go to, I can draft those documents for you.
