Probate & Estates

Understanding probate is the key to properly passing on your assets. All your assets, which include things like your property and money, will be divided into probate and non-probate property after you pass. To handle your assets the way you wish, you must open an estate and work with a lawyer.

Giuffre Law Office is here to assist with all probate and estate needs. We will help you account for your assets, file returns, handle inheritance taxes, and deal with other complicated estate matters.

Wills

A will works similarly to an estate, except a will only comes into effect after you pass. Your will dictates how to split your assets after your death. A properly executed will can be a great help to your loved ones, as it takes the burden of managing your assets off their shoulders. It also ensures that your final wishes are carried out properly.

Our attorneys have assisted dozens of people in setting up their will. We will respect all your wishes and help prepare your assets.

Financial and Medical
Power of Attorney

Power of attorney is often used to ensure an individual's proper end-of-life care. By giving someone power of attorney (POA), they can manage your financial or medical affairs if you are unable to. This can include admitting you into a nursing home, choosing medical facilities, and more.

Giving POA to someone you trust is vital. Giuffre Law Office can help transfer POA to a trusted spouse or relative, ensuring that you receive proper care at the end of your life.

Living Will

Also known as an advance healthcare directive, a living will functions similarly to regular will, except it comes into effect while you are still alive. With a living will, you can dictate what kind of medical care you want. For example, you can dictate if you would like tube feeding, resuscitation, or mechanical breathing assistance. Doctors and other healthcare providers will consult your living will when they decide what kind of care to provide.

Trusts

In layman's terms, a trust is a relationship where one person manages the property and income for another person. A trust helps keep assets under control and saves time and paperwork for the beneficiary. However, setting up a trust is usually a costly and complicated process. Giuffre Law Office's lawyers can walk you through the basics of trusts and help you decide if it's the right choice for you.
