Estate Planning: Securing Your Future

Estate planning is not just for the wealthy. People from all walks of life deserve the security and peace of mind that come with planning ahead. In fact, a carefully drafted estate plan is one of the most important gifts you can give yourself — and your loved ones. By setting out your wishes and preparing for possibilities, you can rest assured knowing your affairs are well in order.

Why Risk Doing It Yourself When You Can Get Affordable And Individualized Legal Help?

Estate planning isn't just about filling out forms. It's about developing the right strategy for your unique situation. Do-it-yourself services simply can't provide the individualized guidance necessary for this important legal process.

At Duggan Pawlowski & Cooke LLP in Buffalo, we offer a better alternative: affordable and experienced legal guidance.

At our firm, you will work one-on-one with a lawyer to ensure that all your needs and goals are met through a tailored estate plan.

We can help you prepare the right documents — which may include a will, trust, health care proxy and power of attorney — to make your wishes known and protect your loved ones.

Probate, Estate Administration And Estate Disputes

Losing a loved one triggers a cascade of legal considerations that must be addressed. If you have been named an executor, you shoulder immense responsibilities when it comes to wrapping up your loved one's affairs. Fortunately, you don't have to tackle these burdens alone. Our lawyers can help you navigate the probate and estate administration process. We'll assist you in pursuing the right type of proceeding and prepare all the necessary paperwork for making the process as smooth and seamless as possible.

We also represent executors, beneficiaries, heirs and other parties in estate-related disputes such as will contests. Our attorneys have the litigation experience and skill necessary to protect your interests in Surrogate's Court.
