Ettinger Law Firm serves its Saratoga, Warren and Glens Falls clients on 340 Broadway in Saratoga Springs. We also have an office at 125 Wolf Road in Albany. Our objective is to help seniors avoid probate proceedings; save legal fees; reduce or eliminate estate, capital gains and income taxes; and protect their assets from nursing home costs. With a properly created and executed estate plan, it may be possible for your heirs and/or beneficiaries to avoid having to go to Surrogate Court. Probate is a sometimes lengthy proceeding that may delay or prevent the distribution of your assets to the rightful beneficiaries.
Our attorneys and paralegals have been creating estate plans for twenty years. These individualized plans address these issues:
- Estate Administration and Probate
- Living Trusts
- Medicaid Planning
- Medicaid Asset Protection Trusts
- Power of Attorney
- Supplemental Needs Trusts
- Inheritance Trusts
An estate plan is not just for the wealthy. Many people believe incorrectly that because their total net worth does not exceed one million dollars, they do not have to bother with protecting their assets. Many unpredictable situations arise in later years, including disability, that warrant careful planning and protection of all of one’s property and assets.
The 4th Judicial District’s Supreme, Surrogate and Family Court is located in the 30 McMaster Street in Ballston Spa. Surrogate Court oversees the administration of a deceased person’s estate.
