Drafting Your Last Will & Testament. Call 516.740.1184 Today!

At The Law Offices of Steven M. Adler, PLLC, we utilize more than 25 years of legal experience to help our clients plan for their future and their family's future. One of the most common ways to go about this is by drafting a last will and testament, and our Long Island estate planning lawyer has the tools, resources and knowledge you need to solidify the future of your estate.

Wills are common and popular because of their versatility. While the drawback to some is the cost of probate in its administration, a will can contain the most diverse variety of assets, from finances to personal belongings.

By drafting your legally valid last will and testament, you can:

  • Choose individuals or organizations to inherit your property
  • Name a guardian to care for minor children or special needs family
  • Name an individual to manage the property left to minor children until they are of age
  • Name an executor to administer the terms of your will upon taking effect

"What happens if I don't draft a will?"

If you pass away without a valid will, your estate will be distributed according to New York intestate laws. If the decedent leaves no children, then the surviving spouse is entitled to the entire estate. If there are children and a surviving spouse, the spouse is entitled to the first $50,000 and the rest of the estate is divided equally between the two parties. If there is no surviving spouse, then the children receive all of the estate. The decedent's parents receive the entire estate if there is not a surviving spouse or child. Creating a will, however, can help you distribute property differently and may be beneficial for you and your family.
