Experienced estate planning lawyer working to prevent financial loss, delay and stress for your loved ones

You have worked hard for what you have earned. Now is the time, no matter your age, to begin planning for the inevitable to ensure your loved ones are protected.

D’Oro Law provides legal counsel to those establishing or modifying complex estate plans by using any of the following tools:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Guardianships
  • Advanced health care directives

The firm also represents clients involved in a number of legal issues related to estate planning:

  • Probate litigation
  • Estate administration
  • Will contests
  • Trust litigation
  • Any issues resulting from asset distribution

No two estates are the same. When creating an estate plan, we examine all assets involved and talk to clients to determine the goals the estate plan should achieve. From there, we draw on our considerable knowledge and experience to customize an estate plan that will direct your assets to your intended beneficiaries with minimal court interference and tax implications.

Ensuring clients’ rights and interests are protected with estate litigation

In New York, every will must go through the probate process to ensure its validity and to pay the necessary estate taxes and expenses through the Surrogate Court. At this time, potential beneficiaries may contest the will in estate litigation. We are prepared to argue your case to obtain what is rightfully yours, as truly decided by your lost loved one.

D’Oro Law regularly represents clients in challenging wills, trusts or fiduciary responsibilities to be carried out by the estate’s executor. The firm is prepared to represent you in any of the following estate litigation matters:

  • Will contests
  • Trust litigation
  • Fiduciary litigation
  • Fiduciary removal

Estate litigation in particular is very tense and can be extremely hostile. It is important to retain a lawyer who whose first priority is to work toward achieving a beneficial result for you without creating additional family tension. Our experience has afforded us the knowledge of the law, strategy, and the importance of reducing any potential financial expense and emotional damage, because it is simply the right thing to do for you and your family.
