Oyster Bay Estate Planning Attorney
Guiding Clients through Estate Planning & Probate
The town of Oyster Bay is the easternmost town of the three towns in Nassau
County, and it is the only town in Nassau County which extends from the
North Shore to the South Shore of Long Island. As of the 2010 census,
nearly 300,000 people called Oyster Bay their home. Oyster Bay has a strong
community and many of its residents consider it as one of the finest towns
in the entire nation. With pristine beaches, beautiful waterfronts, sprawling
landscapes, historic sites and fine shopping, Oyster Bay is a wonderful
place to live and raise a family.
At the Law offices of Steven M. Adler, PLLC, we have been servicing the
town of Oyster Bay and the surrounding communities for over 25 years and
we have helped countless clients achieve their
estate planning goals. Our Oyster Bay estate planning lawyer takes pride in offering personalized
service and a detailed approach to each of our client's cases, no
matter how large or small their estate is. Estate planning is for everyone,
especially for those who have a family, own a home, or have any measurable
assets. You don't have to be a millionaire to need an estate plan,
and in actual fact, working class families need estate planning as much
as anyone else since their family's have more to lose from court costs
and taxes if they don't plan ahead for their estate.
What makes up an estate plan?
Estate planning arranges for the disposition of your assets upon your death;
however, it also involves managing your wealth while you're still
alive. A good estate plan will generally be composed of a number of important
documents including: a
revocable living trust, a
kids protection plan,
advanced directives such as a durable power of attorney or a living will, life
insurance and other documents. Overall, an estate plan aims to preserve the maximum
amount of wealth possible for your intended beneficiaries while providing
you flexibility until your death. One of the biggest concerns in the estate
planning process is federal and state tax laws, which we will take into
full account when strategizing a unique plan that is tailored to you.
Help for Executors, Administrators & Trustees
When someone passes away with a will, an executor is named in the will
and the estate is
probated, which is the process of settling an estate. If the decedent did not have
a will, then the court shall appoint an administrator to settle the estate.
In the contexts of trusts, when the grantor passes away, the trustee is
responsible for managing the trust assets according to the directions
in the trust agreement.
Our firm has extensive experience representing clients during
probate and administration proceedings. We understand how estate administration is a complicated
job, which can be very overwhelming for the average person, especially
when he or she does not have a lot of available free time on hand. We
gladly assist personal representatives in every aspect of the administration
process from start to finish.
With over 25 years of experience to offer you, we are confident that our
legal services will go above and beyond your expectations. Please
