Comprehensive Estate Planning with Wills and Trusts from Experienced Bronx and Westchester Lawyers
At Cavallo & Cavallo Attorneys, a knowledgeable and experienced Bronx estate planning lawyer will take the time to sit down with you and identify your needs and goals in planning for the future. We will draft a will that complies with all New York legal requirements and addresses all aspects of your estate, so that your property will be distributed to your heirs, beneficiaries, favorite charities, etc. in accordance with your wishes. The will is also an effective way to name a guardian whom you trust to care for your minor children, as well as naming an executor for your estate who will follow your wishes competently and compassionately. In addition to drafting a will that addresses the disposition of your estate, our Bronx estate planning attorneys also utilize a combination of living wills, powers of attorney, and health care proxies for individuals that together ensure that decisions regarding your personal finances and health care will be made by people you trust to follow your wishes, in the event you become unable to care for yourself or manage your own personal, financial and legal affairs. These documents must be carefully prepared by qualified individuals to ensure that they will be given effect if they are ever needed.
