We are so excited to see that Western New York is opening back up. As of this week (06/03-06/05), attorneys offices are OPEN!
While our offices are opening back up, it is important that you call ahead for an appointment to ensure that the right person will be in the office to assist you. Our attorneys are working both in the office and remotely so that we can respond quickly and efficiently to our clients and meet our clients' needs.
The courts are starting to open back up for nonessential matters but in a modified way and only for certain activities.
We respect our clients and care deeply about your concerns during this crisis. We are doing everything we can to be informed, responsive, and sensitive to the issues you are facing right now. Together, we will get through this difficult time and emerge stronger and wiser than we were before.
Whether you live in New York or Florida (or both!), we have you covered. We have prepared hundreds of Wills, Trusts, Health Care Proxies, Living Wills, and Power of Attorney forms for our clients. We have the experience to guide you and help you to make the best decisions you can make for your loved ones.
Starting a business and need to set up an LLC? We can help with that. Have questions about which type of business entity is right for you? We can help with that. We have encountered numerous issues through the years helping our small business clients through growth, law suits, tax issues, and succession planning. Let our experience combine with dedication, compassion, and precision for your small business legal needs.
We help clients sort out complex financial and family matters. Second marriage with children from a first marriage? A joint estate plan or prenuptial agreement is not just for the rich and famous - it can help your family transition peacefully if you predecease your spouse. Planning for retirement but not sure how to plan for possible nursing home care? We can talk about that.
A qualified domestic relations order (or QDRO, pronounced "cue-dro" or "qua-dro"), is a judicial order in the United States, entered as part of a property division in a divorce or legal separation that splits a retirement plan (401(k) or pension) by recognizing joint marital ownership interests in the plan, specifically the former spouse's interest in that spouse's share of the asset.
Adoption is defined in New York as “the legal proceeding whereby a person takes another person into the relation of child and thereby acquires the rights and incurs the responsibilities of parent in respect of such other person.” DRL §110. John G. Brenon as substantial experience as a leader in New York State adoption cases. View the text of his 2008 legal seminar on adoption law here.
High New York taxes and harsh winters have pushed many New Yorkers to make Florida their homes. Still, who doesn't love New York?
