We believe that the most essential component of attorney-client relationship is communication. Does the idea of your attorney returning your telephone calls, sending status e-mails, and fully informed on your matter surprise you? We don't think it should. We look forward to changing the way you think about attorneys.
We litigate extensively in the Surrogate’s Court, and can guide you through any litigated estate matter.
Your relationship to the deceased may give you rights to inherit assets or challenge a Will that you believe is invalid. We can help.
Need help submitting a Will to Court for probate and getting appointed as the Executor? Talk to us.
We believe that a good Will is not a fill-in the-blank form, rather it is a document we tailor to your specific needs and our Wills contain language you can actually understand.

While Courts are efficiently operating virtually since the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are wondering.
Preparing for Court can be stressful enough. What else do I need to know if the hearing/conference is occurring remotely?
Forever! (Just kidding.)
If you’re named as a direct beneficiary, you can collect assets immediately with just a death certificate. No Court necessary!
Do I need to update my documents?
