What Makes Us Different?
Long Island Estate Planning Attorney
In order to understand how The Law Offices of Steven M. Adler, PLLC is
different, you will need to know what working with other attorneys can
be like. If you've previously worked with an attorney to prepare an
estate plan, you will probably remember that estate planning seemed like
a complex and confusing task. Because you want to care for your family,
you'll only nod and answer questions and trust that the lawyer will
do a good job. At the end of the process, you'll take your new estate
planning binder home, set it on a shelf and check estate planning off
your to-do list.
Later you may remember that your lawyer told you to put your money in a
trust. Once you're at the bank you'll forget what you were instructed
to do and call your attorney's office. After no one answers, you'll
have to leave a voicemail, return home and wait for a call back several
hours or even days later. That 15 minute phone call back will cost you
$100 and you'll make a mental note to never call the lawyer again.
Years later, you'll refinance your house or purchase a new home and
your children will get older. You will forget that you were supposed to
let your lawyer know you refinanced or forget that you were supposed to
keep the title in the name of the trust. You will not want to call your
attorney to update your guardianship choices, because you remember how
expensive a short phone call can be. The tax laws may also change, but
you won't worry about it because you assume your lawyer would have
contacted you if it affected your plan.
No one will realize that your plan is outdated and is now irrelevant to
your life, your assets and the law until your family finds the binder
after you pass on or become incapacitated. Because your family doesn't
know what to do, they turn to the same lawyer you used to prepare the
documents, who is happy to charge you to probate all of the assets that
never made it into the trust.
