Judy was so kind and took the time to speak to me even though my case isn’t one she would necessarily take, she gave me great advice and I will absolutely keep her in mind if I need a legal mind in the future!

Judy worked with us on our estate planning documents and was extremely thorough, detailed, and helpful through the entire process. She spent the time to make sure we understood what we were planning to do and tailored the work to what we were looking for. She’s great and we highly recommend her!

My wife and I decided to take advantage of her employer’s MetLife Legal program this year to get our basic estate plan documents in order. Judy was very straightforward through all my interactions with her, from the first phone call. We emerged with a package that included Health Care Proxy, Living Will, Power of Attorney, Last Will and Testament, and Revocable Living Trust. Judy does not waste your time, but she also allows enough time to make sure you understand what each document is for and offers plenty of opportunity for review and asking questions. We will consider hiring Judy again when our estate needs change, even if my wife is no longer covered by her employer’s plan.
Ms. Mock was very attentive and answered the questions I had. This was the first time that I had ever spoken with a real estate attorney, and she made me feel very comfortable. I recommend her 100%.

Judy is fantastic!! As we just recently went through the horrors of my wife’s parents passing, we had firsthand knowledge of how things could go wrong without proper planning. As we discussed all these issues we ran into, she carefully came up with a plan and incorporated them into our Health Care Proxies, Living Wills, Power of Attorneys and Last Will and Testaments. We wanted to make sure all our concerns were met and she happily spent the time to explain and seek our input prior to putting it all on paper. Would I use her again? A big YES!

For my husband and me, Judy created Health Care Proxies, Living Wills, Power of Attorneys, Last Will and Testaments, and Revocable Living Trusts. She was very thorough, efficient, and detail-oriented, which I appreciated. Not having gone through the process of estate planning before, she explained everything thoroughly and answered all of my questions in the initial one-hour phone consultation. Then on the day of executing the documents, she again spent time explaining all the documents. She also discussed my next steps (especially with regards to the revocable living trust, which requires opening a new bank account among other things). I had come to the meeting with a list of questions prepared, but she answered all of them without me having to ask them! Overall, very competent, friendly, and a great communicator. I highly recommend her.

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.
