New York's health care proxy law allows you to appoint someone whom you trust to make health care decisions for you in the event that you later lose the ability to make those kinds of decisions for yourself.
It is your decision just how much power to give that person.  The document itself is short and easy-to-understand and should take no longer than just a few
minutes to review and complete.



A living will is a written statement that recites your
wishes about medical treatment should you become
incapable of expressing those wishes.  It  may
include instructions about terminating life support.

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON'T HAVE A WILL?

  Did you know…

    - That revoking a will requires no formal
    ceremony.  It can be as simple as a
    person just tearing up his or her will.
    Thus, if a will is not found among the
    decedent’s personal effects, it is
    usually presumed that he or she either
    revoked a will or never had one.

    - That one should never remove staples
    from a will in order to photocopy it,
    because the court will scrutinize the
    document and the probate process
    may be made more complicated?

    -That Abraham Lincoln, Pablo Picasso,
    and Michael Jackson all died without
    a will?

Tip:  Most people who pass away without a will fully intended to make a will someday.   Those who are waiting for the perfect day to make a will are usually the same persons who pass away without a will.  Good intentions are not enough.  Making a will is a winner all the way around:  It's quick, inexpensive, important, and it protects the interests of your loved ones.  So, just pick a day to do it and get it done.  Call today.  212 791-6240.  You can sign your will next week.
    If you don't have a will, a State formula will govern distribution of your
                   Assets.  That formula  may  not reflect
your preferences.  I recommend having a will
regardless of your age or health.   Making a will is
usually easy and inexpensive and offers peace
of mind that your loved  ones will not get stuck in
long, expensive, and divisive battles with one
another.  Having a will can also sharply  reduce
estate administration expenses.

At your first estate planning appointment, we'll
discuss your plan for your assets and you will be
asked to name someone you trust to serve as
executor.   I will promptly let you know the relevant
NY estate planning issues, and will outline
provisions that we recommend be put into your will.  Your will is custom-designed for your particular family and financial circumstances. 

At  our next meeting, you'll review the will.  Any needed changes can usually can be made on the spot.
