Ensuring Your Final Wishes Are Carried Out
We formed Tague & Vanden Heuvel LLP to help New Yorkers prepare for and deal with major changes in their lives. Preparation for major events via estate planning can help anticipate situations so that they do not become major hurdles when family members are least equipped to deal with them.
Something that everyone goes through at one time or another is the death of a loved one. As estate planning attorneys, we offer comprehensive services, including preparing wills and trusts, so that when the time comes, the surviving family members can focus on what is important.
Helping Our Clients Look Toward The Future
Nobody can predict what might happen down the road. While it may not be pleasant to consider some potential outcomes, doing the work of anticipating worst-case scenarios can bring about peace of mind for you and your family.
In addition to preparing a will, things to consider might also include preparing a power of attorney and a New York health care proxy (living will). Knowing that your wishes will be implemented, and that your loved ones will be taken care of, when the time comes can be a source of great comfort.
In addition to estate planning, we also offer estate administration services. After a person’s death, handling matters such as probate can fall to family members who have little experience in the area. Working with an experienced lawyer can ease some of these burdens. We can put our knowledge and skills to use during these difficult times, particularly in complex situations, such as when a family member has passed away without a will in place.
