Westbury Estate Planning Lawyer
Asset Protection & Planning for the Future
Westbury was incorporated in 1932 as a village in Nassau County. The Village of Westbury is located in the Town of North Hempstead. Westbury is known for being a culturally diverse community with Italian-Americans, African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Arab-Americans, and Indian-Americans. A number of the Italian-Americans in the village trace their heritage back to the town of Durazzano in Southern Italy, and many of them still live on the hill across from Saint Brigid's Church.
When you've worked hard all your life to earn a living and accumulate assets, it's extremely important to protect those hard-earned assets by developing an estate plan that is individually tailored to meet your goals. There are a number of components to a well-rounded estate plan and determining which tools to utilize will depend upon your individual circumstances. For example, if you're a parent with young children, your will should address guardianship for your children should something happen to you. If you are getting older, it will be necessary to address elder law issues such as Medicare planning and possibly long-term care insurance or survivorship insurance.

Superior Legal Guidance with Probate Administration
A large percentage of estates will pass through probate or administration (when someone dies without a will). If you have been named an executor, it's highly recommended that you enlist the support of a probate attorney from our firm. We are extremely familiar with all New York State probate laws and the local Surrogate's Court in Mineola. We can assist you throughout the probate process and make sure that the estate is administered in accordance with all applicable state laws.
