Pat understands that planning your estate may be a difficult and emotional task, which is why Pat listens and takes the time to understand your family dynamics in devising an estate plan that meets your present and future needs. As each estate plan is unique, it is important to learn about each client, his/her family, values and specific concerns when customizing an estate plan. Your estate plan may include the following: Wills, Health Care Proxies, Powers of Attorney, Irrevocable Trusts, Revocable Trusts, Supplemental Needs Trusts, Elder Law and Medicaid Planning, Succession Planning for small/family-owned businesses and tax strategies, all of which Pat has extensive knowledge in and experience with when devising an encompassing estate plan.
Once it becomes time to implement the estate plan, Pat assists the family with timely and efficient administration of the clients' Trust and Estate assets in order to facilitate a smooth and expeditious transition from the estate/trust to the beneficiaries. Pat also is certified to be appointed by the NYS Supreme and Surrogate's Court in matters involving Article 81 guardianships and currently serves as a Court Examiner of Guardian accounts for the Appellate Division, Third Department.
