ESTATE PLANNING LAWYER IN NEW YORK CITY
HELPING YOU PLAN AHEAD
Douglas M. Colbert, Esq., an estate planning lawyer located in the world famous Empire State Building, helps all types of clients formulate and draft estate plans.
Many people may believe that estate plans are only for very wealthy people. The truth is that adults in all stages of life need an estate plan.
Circumstances in life change—sometimes, unpredictably. Planning ahead for these changes is one of the main reasons for formulating an estate plan. With a lawful estate plan, your articulated wishes will be legally binding.
At the same time, if desired, estate plans can be changed. If the circumstances of your family life or financial situation change, or if you simply change your mind, then you can update your estate plan.
CONSIDERING YOUR OPTIONS
Mr. Colbert personally assists clients interested in forming estate plans. This involves listening to his clients’ wishes and concerns and taking a close look at financial and property information. After getting to know the details about his client, Mr. Colbert then explains the options and advises about the best ways to minimize costs and avoid probate.
