Over the years, the lawyers at Tully Rinckey PLLC have helped numerous people with their estate planning needs, such as Wills, Trusts, Living Wills, Health Care Proxies and General Durable Powers of Attorney. Unlike some estate planning attorneys, however, they can also guide you through and demystify the probate process after a person has died. Our goal has and always will be to provide reasonably priced, personal, efficient, knowledgeable and compassionate service to individuals facing the complicated and confusing decisions that often arise during stressful and traumatic times in their lives.
Estate planning is the process where consideration is given to making sure that a person’s assets are distributed in accordance with their wishes after death and minimizing or eliminating potential estate taxes and other expenses. Included in the estate plan are usually a Will, a General Durable Power of Attorney, a Living Will, a Health Care Proxy, and, in certain instances, a Trust.
It is extremely important to have the guidance of an experienced and knowledgeable estate planning attorney when drawing up these documents. Not only will your lawyer be mindful of both federal and state laws governing estates, he or she will advise you as to what you can and can not do with regard to the distribution of your assets.
The attorneys at Tully Rinckey PLLC understand the needs of the people living and working throughout Albany County, the Capital Region and across New York State.
