A will is the most basic form of estate planning. This document details what happens to your property and assets after your death.
Power of Attorney
In the event that you are injured or incapacitated, a power of attorney allows someone else to manage the affairs of your life.
If you suffer an illness or injury that prevents you from communicating, a living will informs your doctors and loved ones about what type of medical care you want to receive, as well as what type of medical care you do not want to receive.
Health Care Proxy
Under the New York Health Care Proxy Law, you have the right to choose someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf if you are disabled and unable to communicate your wishes.
