Estate Planning & Probate

Kathleen DiPaola Lawyer Attorney Albany_NY

Attorneys & Staff Members Who Support this Practice Area

Our firm has experience handling all types of estate planning cases, from the most basic to multi-million-dollar estates. We take the time to discuss with our clients all of the various estate planning documents and which of those might be appropriate given their individual circumstances. The documents we offer our clients include Wills, Trusts, Power of Attorney, Health Care Proxy, Living Will, and Agent for Control of Disposition of Remains.

We help our clients troubleshoot any problems that might occur after their passing and draft documents that will minimize family controversy or discord after the client’s passing. We also help our clients understand how some of the decisions they make about the disposition of their property might cause additional costs in administering their Estate, and help them to find creative solutions to achieve their desired result without the extra cost.

Our firm understands that some of our clients may not be able to travel to our office to execute their documents. We are happy to come to our clients or to meet at another suitable location. Also, in the event of an emergency (end of life or impending surgery or trip), we make every effort to produce these documents the same day or within a few days, as the circumstances may require.

We are also available to assist with the administration of estates and trust after the passing of a client’s family member of friend. We assist with small estates (voluntary administration), administration and probate matters.
