Judy set us up with our wills and health care proxies, and it was quick and easy. She’s no-nonsense & efficient. It feels great to know our assets will smoothly transfer to our kids and won’t end up in probate. No one necessarily wants to plan for the inevitable, but Judy makes it easy to get your paperwork in order.

A Stellar Advocate and Counselor – Judy I am writing this review out of sheer gratitude and admiration for the exceptional service provided by attorney Judy. Having dealt with numerous attorneys over the years, I can confidently say that Judy is an absolute standout in her profession. Judy has assisted us with various crucial legal matters including a Living Will and Health Care Proxy, Power of Attorney and Last Will and Testament, and setting up a Revocable Living Trust. Her breadth of knowledge and expertise in these areas is unquestionable and she has a knack for making complex legal terms easy to understand. What sets Judy apart is not just her incredible competence, but also her practical approach to solving problems. She does not just see the law; she applies it in a way that makes the most sense for your unique situation. She doesn’t offer one-size-fits-all solutions but rather tailors her approach to meet your specific needs. Communication is key in any relationship, particularly in a client-attorney relationship, and Judy excels in this aspect. She keeps you informed at every step of the process, explaining everything in clear, understandable terms. It’s a refreshing change from the usual legalese that can often feel overwhelming. Responsiveness is another area where Judy shines. She promptly returns calls and emails, ensuring that you never feel left in the dark. You can rest assured that your concerns will be addressed promptly and efficiently. Above all, Judy’s strong ethical standards are evident in all her dealings. She is genuinely in your corner, advocating for your interests without any hidden agenda. Her integrity is beyond reproach. In conclusion, if you find yourself in a situation where you need a trustworthy, competent, and responsive attorney who truly has your best interests at heart, your first call should be to Judy. She is an exceptional attorney and a true ally. I wholeheartedly recommend her services.

Judy is an extremely professional, efficient, and courteous attorney. She assisted us with estate planning, where she took time and care to explain the complexities involved, and she advised us about a multitude of events and eventualities. We worked on powers of attorney, living wills, and trust documentation. Lastly, I was impressed how efficient she was. Punctual appointments, everything already pre-vetted, documents pre-filled —- really a very efficient use of our time. Thanks Judy.

Judy is professional, organized, and helpful. She took care of the Health Care Proxy, Living Will, Power of Attorney and Revocable Living Trust for me and my husband. She was absolutely terrific. Explained the steps thoroughly throughout the process and made us feel well informed as we made decisions for these important documents. It was a prompt and informative experience. Couldn’t recommend Judy highly enough.

Judy has been a pleasure to work with and cannot recommend her enough. Despite procuring her services through MetLife, I did not feel like I was treated any differently from her other clients during the process of closing on a house. After discussing our interest in the house and setting some mutual expectations, she went above and beyond to secure a beneficial contract for my wife and me. She identified various clauses that weren’t exactly favorable and was able to get those stricken. Throughout the process, she was with us every step of the way, answering emails off hours, providing guidance and support. In my opinion, she is an exceptional lawyer who truly cares about her clients.

Probate & Administration FAQs

After a person dies, ownership (the legal title) of his or her property, assets and personal effects must be passed on (legally transferred) to the beneficiaries (heirs) listed in the Will. If there is no Will, the persons receiving assets are designated by State law. “Probate” is the legal name given to this process.

First, the Last Will and Testament must be verified as the valid, final dispositive statement of the decedent (the official record of the deceased person’s final wishes). The Will generally names the person or institution appointed to administer (manage) the probate estate process. When there is no valid Will, State law governs who receives the assets of the deceased.

In New York, the probate court is called the Surrogate Court. There is a different Surrogate Court in each county. The Last Will and Testament of the Decedent must be probated in the county where the Decedent was domiciled.

The Probate process can be expensive, time-consuming, and may be open to the public. The length of time needed to complete probate and the costs associated with probate of an estate will depend on the size and complexity of the estate.
