Nassau County Estate Planning Attorney
Put Our 30+ Years of Experience to Work for You
Nassau County is located immediately due east of New York City on Long Island and is within the New York Metropolitan Area. As of the 2010 census, the population exceeded 1,300,000. Nassau, together with Suffolk County are referred to as "Long Island" by the people who live there and is distinct from the New York City boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn. In 2012, Forbes magazine reported that Nassau County was the 12th richest county in America and the wealthiest in New York with an annual household income of approximately $91,000.
A well-crafted estate plan is something that everyone needs, especially if they are married, have children, a blended family or own real estate. Even those who come from modest estates stand to benefit from a wealth management and asset protection plan. Unfortunately, many people fail to establish an estate plan because contemplating their own death is unnerving. Others have a tendency to wait until they are on their death bed, and such "death bed" wills can fall under questioning for reasons of fraud, mental incapacity and undue influence. When people wait until the last minute to draft a will, their estates suffer and cannot be fully maximized as they would have if proper planning had been in order.
