Estate Planning

Abrams Yu and Associates, P.C. offers estate planning and probate administration services to our clients. We recognize that it is necessary to develop a plan that will adapt to changing life circumstances, such as a divorce, remarriage, birth of a child or a spouse or close family member becoming disabled or dying. Our job is to assist our clients through the estate planning and estate and trust administration process efficiently and effectively so as to avoid conflict and confusion. We, as attorneys and as individuals, recognize the need to provide for ourselves and our families not only for today, but also for the future.

We work directly with our clients and their families on the creation of an effective estate plan that can:

  • Avoid probate of a decedent’s estate
  • Ensure proper distribution of property and assets
  • Provide options outside of court intervention in case of disability
  • Facilitate end-of-life decision-making

Typical services that we offer to our clients for their estate planning and administration needs include:

  • Wills
  • Revocable Living Trusts
  • Pre/Post-Nuptial Agreements
  • Patient Advocate Designations/Health Care Powers of Attorney/ Living Wills
  • Durable Powers of Attorney
  • General Powers of Attorney
  • Guardianships
  • Conservatorships
  • Estate and Trust Administration

Frequently, families need to use the Probate Courts. Probate Courts administer cases that fall under the Estates and Protected Individuals Code. Some issues that the Probate Courts have exclusive jurisdiction over include the administration over decedent’s estates both with and without legally executed wills; and limited and full guardianships and conservatorships over minors, mentally incapacitated individuals, and developmentally disabled individuals.

We offer individualized counsel for all probate and estate planning needs with a commitment to personal service and clear, consistent communication with our clients to ensure that informed decisions are made in the client’s best interest.
