A Wide Range of Estate Planning Services
Attorney Kossoff has the skill and experience to help you with a wide range of estate planning services, including:
High net worth estate planning: No matter how simple or complex an estate plan may be, there is often a gap between things that look good on paper and things that work in the real world. Attorney Kossoff understands these concerns, and can review existing plans or help draft wills and trusts that can bridge that gap and ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes.
Trustee representation: If you have been named the trustee of a loved one's estate, it is vital to understand the responsibilities associated with this role. Any errors could result in liability and added expense. As your attorney, Mr. Kossoff can guide you through the administration of the trust and protect you against any legal action. If a lawsuit is filed, he will be a strong advocate for you in litigation.
Long-Term and Life Care Planning: Even if you are currently in good health, it is important to consider your options should your situation ever worsen. Attorney Kossoff can help you achieve your goals should you ever find yourself in need of long-term medical care. He can also help you if a family member is expected to or currently requires long-term care.
Companion animal trusts: As a pet owner, you want to ensure that the emergency and long-term needs of your animal are taken care of should you die or become incapacitated. Mr. Kossoff is a shelter pet owner himself and an experienced attorney who understands this unique area of the law. He will work with you to devise a pet trust that will address the specific needs of your cat, dog, horse, bird or other companion animal.
