Estate Planning is the process of anticipating and arranging for the disposal of an estate during your life. Estate planning typically attempts to eliminate uncertainties over the administration of a probate and maximize the value of the estate by taking into account tax liabilities and other expenses. Guardians are often designated for minor children and beneficiaries in incapacity.
At The Law Office of Gerald Klein we work closely with individuals who need to establish specific plans for the distribution of assets at death, and for the care of minor children, if necessary. We help clients understand and implement the different strategies available to bring about the orderly distribution of an estate. We also help clients who need to settle the estate of a loved one in Surrogate Court.
