How Our Manhattan Attorneys Can Help You
Real estate transactions and estate planning can feel overwhelming. But a skilled Manhattan attorney can walk you through the process and help you plan for the future. From our Manhattan office location, our trusted team at Chaves Perlowitz Luftig LLP is ready to help you with:
Estate planning is one of the most important steps you can take for the future of you, your family, and your business. By having a strong estate plan in place, you can build and protect your legacy while maintaining control over the choices that matter to you.
- Wills are a critical part of every estate plan. A properly written will can provide clarity and peace of mind as you protect your legacy and take care of your loved ones. In the estate planning process, an attorney can listen to your goals and draft a will that lays out your wishes.
- Trusts allow you to protect and preserve your wealth while keeping important estate planning issues in your hands. By placing assets in a trust, you can keep them out of the lengthy probate process and retain control over them during your lifetime. As part of your estate planning, an attorney can review your assets and goals and determine what type of trusts make sense for you.
- A power of attorney should be part of your estate planning. If there is ever a time when you are incapacitated or unable to make decisions on your own, someone with a power of attorney can handle your legal and financial decisions. A lawyer from Chaves Perlowitz Luftig LLP can help you prepare the forms you need and designate the person you trust to decide significant matters for you.
- A healthcare proxy gives someone you trust the power to make medical decisions for you. When set up properly, a healthcare proxy allows you to make your healthcare choices clear and empowers a trusted individual to make sure your wishes are followed. In any estate plan, a healthcare proxy should be part of the planning process, and our attorneys can help.
Probate and Estate Administration
Probate and estate administration can take a significant amount of time and become overwhelming. You may have to provide notices, gather assets, pay debts and taxes, make an accounting to the court, and distribute the remainder to the people listed in the will. If there is no will, the process can be even more frustrating. From our Manhattan office, our legal team can help take the burden off you and manage the probate administration process.
Real Estate Transactions
Real estate transactions for businesses and individuals can be expensive and complex. Our widely respected Manhattan lawyers have decades of experience helping clients in commercial and residential real estate transactions. Whether you need help with buying and selling, banking and financial issues, or commercial leasing, our team is here for you.
Landlord-tenant issues come up constantly in New York City, and the law changes frequently. Our knowledgeable attorneys can handle a wide range of landlord-tenant issues, from keeping you updated on legislative changes to representing you at administrative hearings. Whether you are the landlord or the tenant, turn to our attorneys when you have an issue to resolve.
