Haber & Associates can assist with any type of estate litigation.

In these circumstances you may need to retain an estate litigation lawyer to assist you. If you require assistance with any type of estate litigation or litigation pertaining to estate proceedings, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The administration of an estate by an executor can be a daunting task. We can offer you the proper advice and guidance that may assist you in your fiduciary duty as an executor or as an administrator of an estate. We can assist you with preliminary considerations, with the determination of assets, your duty in determining and notifying beneficiaries, issues with applying for a certificate of appointment of an estate trustee, collecting and preserving the assets, payment of debts, income tax considerations, payment of legacies, maintaining the estate, being a prudent investor, delegation of responsibilities, any conflict of interest, compensation of estate trustees, and the final distribution of estate assets.
Since you legally hold property in trust for the ultimate use of beneficiaries, your duty as executor or administrator is an important fiduciary duty. If you have any questions or concerns about the administration of an estate, or if you require legal assistance or guidance concerning the administration of an estate, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Powers of Attorney for Personal Care and Property are legal planning documents that are essential should you become incapacitated. The purpose of these documents is to allow adults to arrange in advance how, when and by whom, decisions about their health and personal care will be made if they become incapable of making decisions independently. This avoids the need for the Court to appoint someone to help adults make decisions, or someone to make decisions for adults, when they are incapable of making their own independent decisions. Haber & Associates can draft powers of attorney, both for health care and finance for you and your loved ones. Don’t get stuck with people you don’t want making decisions for you about your personal health care and finance in times of crisis. Plan ahead and put yourself in good hands.
If you require assistance with a simple Will or complex litigation we can help. And fast.
