    Queens Estate Planning Lawyers

    Probate Attorney & Estate Planning Lawyer Serving Queens & All of New York

    Estate planning and probate are integral components of ensuring the orderly distribution of assets and the fulfillment of one’s wishes upon death. Estate planning involves the strategic preparation of legal documents such as wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and healthcare directives to dictate how assets are managed and distributed. Probate, on the other hand, is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, which includes validating the will, paying debts and taxes, and distributing assets to beneficiaries. Together, estate planning and probate serve to protect individuals’ interests and provide peace of mind for themselves and their loved ones during life and after death.

    Navigating probate law cases can pose significant challenges for grieving families, often leading to financial strain. At Ledwidge & Associates, we understand the importance of efficiently resolving probate matters while keeping costs manageable for our clients. We prioritize cost-effectiveness by offering flexible payment plans, allowing clients to spread legal fees over an extended period. Additionally, we provide contingency fee billing in appropriate cases, ensuring that our firm only receives fees upon successfully litigating a matter, whether through trial or settlement.

    If you require representation for a will contest or probate law issue in Queens, Brooklyn, or anywhere in the New York City metro area, our team is here to assist you. Reach out to us today online or by telephone at 718-276-6656 to schedule a consultation with an experienced Queens probate lawyer.
