Wills as Estate Planning Tools

In New York, if you die without a will and have not taken any other measures to ensure the orderly distribution of your assets, your estate will pass according to the New York laws on intestacy. The process can be expensive and time-consuming, adding unnecessary stress to the lives of your loved ones. A simple will can provide your heirs with clear direction and peace of mind.
At the Law Office of Bonnie Lawston, we have effectively protected the rights of people throughout Long Island for more than 20 years. We have an extensive knowledge of all the different tools available to help you effectively plan your estate, including the use of wills. Attorney Lawston will evaluate your situation and determine your goals, and help take the right steps to protect your estate and your loved ones.
We offer special discounts to senior citizens, and will come to your home to meet with you, if necessary. For a free initial consultation, contact us online [link to Contact Us page] or call us at 631-425-7299 or 24/7 at 855-479-4700).

Protect Your Estate with a Will, trust and other applicable documents

A carefully drafted will addresses:
  • The distribution of real and personal property upon your death—You can designate who is in charge of your Estate, your burial, that specific items of property go to certain individuals (specific bequests), or you can also designate that all or some of your assets be sold, with the proceeds divided among your heirs. You can also name charitable organizations as beneficiaries of your estate.
  • The payment of final debts and taxes—Your will customarily grants your executor the authority to settle any outstanding debts and to ensure that inheritance or estate tax filings are completed.
  • The care of minor children, or of adults for whom you act as guardian or conservator
