    Probate Attorney & Estate Planning Lawyer Serving Queens

    Estate planning and probate play pivotal roles in ensuring the orderly distribution of assets and the realization of one’s wishes upon passing. Estate planning encompasses the strategic crafting of legal documents like wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and healthcare directives, dictating asset management and distribution. Conversely, probate is the legal procedure for administering a deceased individual’s estate, involving validating the will, settling debts and taxes, and distributing assets to beneficiaries. Together, these processes safeguard individuals’ interests and offer peace of mind for themselves and their loved ones, both in life and beyond.

     

    Navigating probate law matters can be a daunting task for families grappling with loss, often compounded by financial pressures. At Ledwidge & Associates, we understand the importance of efficiently addressing probate issues while keeping costs manageable for our clients. We prioritize affordability by offering flexible payment plans, allowing clients to spread out legal fees over time. Additionally, in appropriate circumstances, we provide contingency fee billing, meaning our firm only collects fees upon achieving a successful resolution through trial or settlement. This approach underscores our commitment to ensuring access to quality legal representation without adding to the financial burden during challenging times.

     

    If you find yourself in need of legal representation for a will contest or any probate-related issue in Queens, Brooklyn, or anywhere else within the expansive New York City metro area, rest assured that our dedicated team at Ledwidge & Associates is ready to support you. We bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the table, coupled with a deep understanding of local laws and procedures.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Probate is the legal process of administering a deceased person's estate. It involves validating the person's will (if one exists), paying debts and taxes, and distributing assets to beneficiaries.

    The duration of probate varies depending on factors such as the complexity of the estate, whether there are disputes among beneficiaries, and state laws. Probate can take anywhere from a few months to several years to complete.

    A trust is a legal arrangement in which one party (the trustee) holds assets on behalf of another party (the beneficiary). Unlike a will, a trust can bypass probate and provide more control over how and when assets are distributed.
