 Helping To Protect The People You Love And The Assets You’ve Earned

If you’re like most people, you don’t exactly wake up every morning and ponder the intricacies of estate planning. In fact, for those who’ve actually bothered to think about it at all, the idea of being an estate planning attorney probably seems about as exciting as watching paint dry. But I find estate planning to be very exciting and personally rewarding. That’s because it has allowed me to get to know many interesting people and assist thousands of families and individuals.

Over the years, I’ve come to realize that while every person has unique concerns and goals with regard to estate planning, some generalities can be made. Everyone wants to bring order to their affairs and pass their goals and values on to the people they love, but if you are of modest means, chances are you are most concerned about providing for your physical comfort and long-term care. If you are part of the vast middle class, you also want to protect your hard-earned assets from being eaten up by estate taxes, probate fees, creditors, predators and lawsuits, and to ensure your children’s inheritance. If you are well-to-do, you must concern yourself with these same issues as well as stewarding your wealth, providing for an enduring legacy and impact on society, and determining the level of responsibility you want to pass on to family members and loved ones.

At the Burstein Law Firm, we have assisted individuals and families from all walks of life. And for those of you who are simply averse to planning in general, we probate many estates every year. We welcome the opportunity to get to know you and assist you in realizing your dreams.
