Representing Clients in New York

Estate planning is an important service that Goldstein, Ackerhalt & Pletcher, LLP provides to all families, particularly those with individuals with disabilities. Parents and family members of individuals with disabilities understand the need to provide for the long-term well-being of their loved ones, which can be especially complex. Our will and estate planning attorneys understand the issues facing the families of persons with disabilities and can help you ensure the financial and personal security of your loved ones.

Caring for Loved Ones with Disabilities

Some individuals with disabilities will require specific care and services for the rest of their lives, and many family members, especially parents, worry about how that care can be continued when they pass away. Goldstein, Ackerhalt & Pletcher, LLP can advise you about various legal mechanisms for ensuring the long-term care and stability of disabled children and loved ones.

We will help you create and update your end-of-life arrangements, including your Last Will and Testament. This important document governs the distribution, investment, and management of your financial resources after your passing.

Goldstein, Ackerhalt & Pletcher, LLP can also help you set up financial and legal entities such as a trust, to which you can designate a portion of your financial resources. A will can also be a vehicle for charitable giving to organizations that serve or advocate for individuals with disabilities.

Making End-of-Life Decisions

For many people, dealing with end-of-life issues is difficult and emotionally taxing. Goldstein, Ackerhalt & Pletcher, LLP understands this difficulty, but we are also aware of the necessity for end-of-life planning. Without important documents like your Will, your remaining assets may end up being used in ways you would not approve of, or may not adequately provide for your family. Even if you are still young, it is important to consider the possibility of an accidental or premature death and the consequences for your family. This is important not because you should be afraid, but because you should be prepared.

Our estate planning lawyers can help you create an estate plan that fits your needs and desires. Please contact Goldstein, Ackerhalt & Pletcher, LLP today to schedule a free estate planning consultation.
