Wills, Probate, and Surrogate Court Litigation

There are three basic purposes when an individual signs a will.  1.  The client desires to care for a loved one’s emotional needs.  2.  The client desires to care for a loved one’s financial needs.  3.  The client desires to avoid the payment of unnecessary taxes.  Michael A.
