Estate

The continuance of your family and your business after you are gone is a critical and sensitive subject. You want the transition of property to be done exactly the way you think is best—and that is your right. You need to make arrangements with a law firm that has a long history with both estate law as well as a proven track record at handling challenges and conflicts.

At Chesney & Nicholas LLP, you will be working with experienced estate attorneys who collectively have hundreds of years in assisting clients in asset protection, care, preservation, and distribution of those assets, as well as the documentation of their health care directives. Regardless of the complexity of your situation or the size of the estate, we can guide you through the options most appropriate to your needs.

Our reliable team of estate attorneys and legal experts draft wills, trusts, power of attorneys, and health care proxies. In addition, our attorneys assist administrators and executors in the task of probating the will. We will help you to correctly prepare all the necessary documentation to enable the transfer of assets among beneficiaries, including the disposition of real property. Upon request, we also monitor distributions made by fiduciaries for helpful asset protection services. In the event of conflict, we have the experience necessary for resolving any issues that might arise. Our goal is to insure the wishes of our clients.

The passing of property after death is a thick and risky area of law, open for challenges during a difficult time. We understand and invite you to talk with us about the successful cases our trust & estate attorneys have managed for clients in the five boroughs of New York City, and in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
