Elder Law Planning

Why Elder Law estate planning? At any age, life can be unpredictable, whether you are talking about adult children looking after or directly taking care of an elderly parent or Senior citizens themselves, who face countless challenges everyday to ensure they have the income/money, healthcare and everyday needs to live happily. Dealing with and planning individual care and a Senior's estate is a big responsibility. So plan ahead. 

Elder law is an estate planning process that takes into account your assets, your resources, plans for your retirement as well as your long term care plan and puts aside enough resources for comfortable retirement.  This estate planning process helps you protect your assets today as well as maintain control over your future tomorrow.

Our difference: At the Law Offices Of Inna Fershteyn, our main areas of practice is Elder Care Law, Estate Planning and Wills, Trusts & Estate Law.  We work with your family's Estate Planning needs and pay specific attention to the specialized needs of older adults, providing senior legal assistance on a wide range of needs starting from medical health care planning to estate and trust planning (e.g. pooled income trusts, medicaid applications, and nursing home planning that can give you access to public assistance benefits).

Wills, Trusts And Estate Planning

Drafting a will is an important step for individuals of virtually any age so that your wishes are known and documented. Estate planning on your own terms also means handling your tax planning properly so that you aren't paying more Federal or New York State estate taxes than is necessary. There are many tax planning instruments at your disposal when you plan in advance, using New York estate law to your benefit. Your attorney will help you use the estate planning tools that make sense for your individual situation.

As a New York estate planning attorney for almost 20 years, Inna Fershteyn will also be able to recommend which trusts can be set up to properly protect assets and improve how you transfer and maintain wealth within your family. Trusts help avoid the time consuming and emotionally difficult process of probate.

1. What is the difference between Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts?
2. What is the difference between a Trust and a Will?
2. What can be transferred into the Trust?
3. How long does the probate take?
