Estate Planning & Estate Litigation
Safeguard Your Assets for Future Generations
If you or a loved one has worked a lifetime to accumulate property, belongings
and investments, these assets deserve to be protected. At Tilem &
Associates, PC, we are proud to help people throughout the New York metropolitan
area, from Westchester County to Suffolk County, protect the wealth they
have spent a lifetime building.
We offer free initial consultations in which our attorneys sit down with
potential clients, listen to them carefully, and then suggest an estate
plan that best fits their needs. Our estate planning lawyers can help
you understand the complex structure of laws related to gifts, estates,
wills and trusts, and provide needed guidance.
We have handled a number of delicate probate, estate planning, and estate
administration matters. Just a few estate planning elements that we can
- Drafting Simple, Complex and Pour-over Wills
- Revocable, Irrevocable, Children’s and Charitable Trusts
- Limited Family Partnerships
- Living Wills
- Healthcare Proxies
- Durable Powers of Attorney
- Business Succession Planning
- Estate Tax Issues (see below)
Without a comprehensive estate plan, the courts may end up making choices
regarding the disposition of your assets and guardianship of your minor
children. We work to ensure that our clients control what happens to their
estates. We can also assist people who are currently dealing with probate
or estate administration.
Dealing with estate tax issues?
At Tilem & Associates, PC, many of our estate planning clients are
interested in avoiding estate taxes as much as possible. Our White Plains
estate planning and probate attorneys work closely with accountants and
investment advisors who understand tax avoidance matters and can help
our clients minimize estate taxes.
On top of New York’s significant estate tax, you may have to deal
with federal estate taxes, which are very complicated. As you may be aware,
the federal estate tax is scheduled to be repealed effective in the year
2010. However, the federal estate tax goes back into effect with a pre-2004
exclusion the very next year, 2011.
