Brooklyn, New York Estate Planning and Probate Attorneys
Knowing you and your family are taken care of should something unforeseen happen is an important reason for creating a will or trust. At the Law Offices of David J. Hernandez & Associates, located in Brooklyn, New York, we identify ways to allocate and structure financial resources for the purposes of taking care of loved ones in the event of disability or death. Using a will or trust, our estate planning attorneys explore your options for establishing guardianships, educational funds, property inheritance, asset transfers, and healthcare directives in cases of severe injury or brain death.
Estate Planning Tools
There’s quite a bit to consider in getting the information you need to lay plans for you and your family’s future. The attorneys at the Law Offices of David J. Hernandez & Associates represent clients in the following kind estate planning matters:
We know it can be a little strange to talk about yourself in the past tense. However, failing to plan for the unexpected could mean the difference between providing your family with a tax-smart, efficient plan that saves them money and exposing them to expensive, lengthy probate hearings.
And, in cases when a will or trust does not exist, non-family members can lay claim to some or all of your assets, further complicating things for your family. Since probate hearings are a matter of public record, leaving a will or trust behind allows you to keep matters private and in your family, away from the public and prying eyes.
