What Is Probate and How Long Does It Take?

Upon your passing, probate allows the financial institutions responsible for holding your assets the ability to release them to your executor and heirs without the potential of being sued or held liable.

Establishing Wills and Trusts

Creating a will is the best way to ensure your wishes are carried out upon your death. A will allows you to grant your assets and possessions to heirs, charities, friends and loved ones, and to protect family members from barriers to inheritances and disputes. Establishing a trust allows you to minimize estate taxes and is the hallmark of any well-organized estate planning vehicle. There are several options available to you when drafting a will or forming a trust. Your choices should reflect your goals. Allow Mr. Faigenbaum to sit down with you and go over each of your options.
