WILLS, TRUSTS AND ESTATES

The Summers Law Firm can prepare a professional estate plan that will provide for your future. Having a professionally designed estate plan makes dealing with life's eventualities much easier.

Wills and Trusts

The most important reason you should have a will is to protect your assets - your home, cars, bank accounts, stocks and bonds, retirement benefits, jewelry, and other valuables.

Having a will gives you the opportunity to select the executor for your estate, a guardian for your children, and provide instructions for payment of your debts. Without a will, your property will be distributed according to the presumptions of New York State law, and the court will select an administrator for your estate and a guardian for your minor children.

Preparing Your Will with an Attorney

The attorneys at The Summers Law Firm can help you prepare your will and explain the tax consequences. They will help you comply with the requirements for a valid will that minimizes taxes, reduces the time and expense of handling your estate, and ensures that your assets are distributed as you wish.

Changing Your Existing Will

You may need to change your existing will if you move to a new state, get married, divorced, have a child, acquire a business or substantial property, or suffer the loss of a loved one. The attorneys at The Summers Law Firm can help you address these changes by updating your estate plan as necessary.
