Experienced Wills, Trusts & Probate Attorneys in Stamford Serving Connecticut & New York

We provide legal and fiduciary services in connection with all types of will, trust and probate matters. Our wills, trusts and estate lawyers offer guidance and advice to individuals and families in the field of estate and tax planning with the objective to minimize taxes and protect their assets. We handle each case with sensitivity to our clients’ current and future needs.

Because the content of their last wills and testaments are vitally important to our clients and their families, we engage in extensive discussions to fully understand their individual family and financial situations, intentions and goals. We then draft wills that reflect each client’s objectives for distributing assets, caring for loved ones, supporting charitable causes and minimizing the tax implications during their lifetimes and to their estates after death. Our lawyers for creating trusts also tailor legal trust instruments that meet our clients’ specific goals.

Drafting and amending wills

We encourage clients to update their last wills periodically and after the occurrence of a significant financial or family event — such as a divorce, birth or death in the family or upon receiving a personal injury settlement. Depending on the amount of changes the instrument requires, our lawyers draft codicils to amend the original will or we create a replacement document.

Our wills, trusts and estate attorneys experienced in administering estates of all sizes and counseling executors and trustees on how to perform their fiduciary duties properly and responsibly. We compassionately guide families and executors through the probate process. If a loved one did not have a will, we skillfully handle the often complex issues that accompany administration of intestate estates. Our lawyers advise beneficiaries on resolving disputes, often applying negotiation and mediation tactics to preserve family relations and reach timely and cost-effective outcomes.
