Estate Planning Lawyer


Long Island Estate Planning Lawyer

Estate planning is about planning for your future and the future of your heirs and not just for the wealthy. Determining who will care for minor children, protecting a home which has increased in value, minimizing debts or tax liabilities, avoiding government intrusion in your personal life, protecting loved ones who have cared for you or who have special concerns or simply determining to whom your assets should be given and in what proportion are issues effecting everyone and are just a few of the reasons to consult with an estate planning attorney.

Estate Planning Information

The Misrok Law Firm, LLP, are experienced estate planning attorneys who can explain the benefits and risks you face and provide you with the most cost effective and detailed estate planning. Proper estate planning maximizes the amount or value of the assets you pass, minimizes your estate taxes and provides for the care and welfare of a spouse, children and/or others important to you. A proper estate plan may include wills and/or trusts to resolve issues upon your death; but should also include advanced directives such as powers of attorney, health care proxies, HIPPA affidavits and living wills in the eventuality that you become incapacitated and need others to make decisions or act on your behalf.
