Life & Legacy Planning Attorney in NYC
Welcome to Benjamin Katz, Esq. P.C. At our life and legacy planning firm, our focus is not on producing legal documents on a transactional basis. Rather, we strive to establish and maintain long-term relationships with each of our clients, to help them reduce the potential for chaos in their lives and bring them and their families peace of mind. Our firm is based in New York, NY, and we serve clients throughout the area:
- Staten Island
- Long Island
- And more!
Our lead attorney, Benjamin Katz, Esq. P.C., takes pride in assisting clients in avoiding delay, expense and potential litigation through proper life and legacy planning. We call it “life and legacy planning” because it is not just about your assets. A proper and effective plan starts when you are still alive and continues long after death. Your legacy is not just the assets your leave but the memories, wisdom and security left to loved ones and charitable organizations.
Although life and legacy planning is the firm’s primary focus, we practice in the areas of real estate, probate and administration, and animal law, including litigation in those areas. No matter your need, we take pride in quick and effective responses to our clients’ needs.
The Importance of Life & Legacy Planning
It’s a truth that everyone dies at some point. Many also succumb to physical or mental incapacity. However, many people fail to plan for these events, thinking that life and legacy planning is only for celebrities or individuals with a sizable net worth. Everyone with children, pets, property, financial accounts and other personal assets needs a plan to address what will happen if they should unexpectedly or expectedly die or become incapacitated. If there are charities or organizations that you wish to support, you need a plan.
Without a written plan, the state of New York will determine how and when your assets are distributed. The state will also decide who will make financial and medical decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated. Nothing will be given to charity and your loved ones will be left to guess about what you would have wanted.
Benjamin Katz, Esq. P.C. can help you achieve your goals. We will take the time necessary to properly evaluate your particular situation, provide a roadmap to ensure your life and legacy goals, and prepare legal documents such as a will, trust, durable power of attorney, healthcare proxy, living will and other tools to ensure your health and financial affairs are properly handled.
