If you live in Brooklyn, Kings County or New York county or the surrounding tri-state NY area, drafting a trust is an important step for individuals of 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 Brooklyn elder law attorney / estate planning attorney for almost 24 years, top Asset Protection lawyer 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?
