Trust and Estate Matters,

When a loved one dies the Probate Process can be confusing and time consuming, particularly if they passed without leaving a Will.  Call us to help you settle an estate by taking care of the entire Probate Process including Obtaining Letters Testamentary for the Executor of the Estate or Letters of Administration for the Administrator of the Estate. 

If the worst should happen, you want to know that your family and loved ones are protected.  Wills and Trusts that are not set up properly can leave their security in doubt and Contested Wills can lead to months or years of court battles.  Ask us about Establishing Trusts & Preparing Wills and Living Wills for you and your family. 

Appellate Litigation,

Unlike most attorneys, Michael has extensive experience Drafting Appellate Briefs and performing Oral Arguments before New York State and Federal Appellate Courts.  If you have lost your case with your previous attorney, contact us today to discuss your prospects for an appeal.
