Wills and Living Trusts


It is important that individuals have either a will or trust to cost effectively pass their property at their death according to their wishes.  The lawyers at the Yanowitz Law Firm listen to your objectives and craft an estate plan to execute your goals.

Our Rochester lawyers draft wills and trusts to ensure that family wealth is protected and taxes are minimized. We set up plans to ensure spouses and disabled children are cared for, nominate guardians for minor children and leave a lasting legacy to charity.  We craft trusts to minimize liability and increase asset protection.  The lawyers at the Yanowitz Law Firm help families execute plans to pass family businesses, cabins and farms to the next generation.

A will distributes property through court proceeding call probate.   Many of our clients would rather avoid the expense and delay of probate and instead have living trusts (also called revocable trusts) dispose of their assets at their death.  The attorneys at the Yanowitz Law Firm can help you understand the differences between a will and trust and assist you in deciding what is best for you and your family.
