Real Estate Purchases & Sales

Cavallo & Cavallo are Bronx and Westchester real estate attorneys experienced in representing the interests of buyers, sellers, and lenders in a wide variety of residential and commercial real estate transactions, including purchases, sales and refinancings. We provide advice and assistance at every stage of the process, up to and including representation at refinance closings and bank closings.

Estate Planning & Asset Protection

Estate planning involves more than drafting a will to decide how your property will be distributed to your heirs after you are gone. The right combination of wills and trusts can protect your assets and provide you with the greatest flexibility to meet the needs of you and your family during your lifetime while ensuring that probate and estate administration can be accomplished with a minimum amount of stress, worry, time and expense. Comprehensive estate planning also includes drafting the right instruments to make sure your financial affairs and personal health care are taken care of in the event you become incapacitated and unable to look after these matters on your own.

Nursing Home and Community Medicaid & NYSARC Trusts

A period of nursing home care is a not uncommon occurrence as we age and our physical health care needs increase. Unfortunately, nursing home care is extremely expensive, and governmental benefits designed to offset these costs are generally only available to people with certain low levels of income. Planning and preparation for this eventuality through the use of Medicaid and NYSARC trusts can help ensure that you are able to access needed care without first having to spend through the savings you have accumulated during your lifetime. As an experienced Bronx estate planning law firm, Cavallo & Cavallo Attorneys understands the importance of considering Medicaid and NYSARC trusts in your estate plan and can advise and assist you accordingly.

Personal Injury/Work Site Injury

If you have been injured due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of another, whether in an automobile accident, slip and fall, workplace injury, or due to a defective product or medical malpractice, you should not be forced to bear the burden and expense of your injuries that were wrongfully caused by another. We work to make sure that you get the medical care and monetary compensation that you need and deserve to ease your suffering and make up for the harm done to you to the greatest extent possible.
