Personalized Counsel in Estate Planning and Probate Administration

At the law offices of Khan & Yau, LLP, we place a high priority on the needs of our clients. We are a boutique law firm with a global outlook, and we can help you with your international and domestic legal needs. We intentionally keep our practice small so that we can pay attention to every detail of your case, giving you big firm work without feeling lost in the shuffle. You will never be just a number on a file. When you hire us to help you with estate planning or probate issues, you will work directly with our attorneys, who will listen carefully your concerns, so that we can help you take the necessary steps to meet your goals. Because we focus on responsive and reliable representation, we have many repeat clients.

Our Estate Planning Practice

When you come to us for estate planning counsel, we will start the process by gathering as much information as we can about you—your finances, your family structure, as well as your estate planning goals. Next, we will help you understand the different strategies for accomplishing your objectives, such as wills and trusts, the re-titling of assets, and lifetime gifts.

Once you have determined which approach is best-suited to your situation, we will prepare and execute the documents necessary to put your estate plan in place, including:

  • Simple or complex wills, as well as codicils to amend existing wills
  • Trusts—living or testamentary, revocable and irrevocable, life insurance trusts, charitable remainder trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Healthcare proxies
  • Family limited partnerships

Our Probate Practice

We work with executors, administrators, personal representatives and heirs, helping you complete all the steps required to close the estate of a loved one through the probate courts. Our attorneys can prepare all the necessary paperwork throughout the process, and will act as your advocate in any hearings or proceedings with the probate court.

If you have not officially been appointed to handle the estate, we can help you complete the requirements to be designated as executor or administrator. We will help you prepare and submit an accounting of the assets of the estate, pay all final debts and taxes of the deceased, and oversee the orderly distribution of property in accordance with the terms of the will. If your loved one died intestate (without a will), we will help you oversee the settlement of the estate in accordance with New York's laws on intestacy. We also handle any disputes that may arise during the probate administration process, including will contests.
