Post-Mortem Planning: Even Now, It Is Not Too Late to Plan

When a loved one has died, you are often faced with a large number of major decisions. If he or she failed to plan, the number of questions and choices is even greater. Our deep familiarity with estate, trust and tax law can often enable a family to achieve positive results and minimize taxes where appropriate planning was not in place.

If you are a surviving family member, and are floundering and overwhelmed by the prospect of settling your loved one's estate, our firm can guide you through the process, easing your stress and your burden. You are probably dealing with questions that are foreign to you. For example, should you still file a joint income tax return if your spouse died this year? You can lean on our attorneys for answers to all of your estate administration and tax planning questions.

The combined emotional and financial burdens you face after losing a loved one can seem overwhelming. Let the compassionate and trusted lawyers from Levine DeSantis, LLC, help you. Call 973-376-9050 or contact us online.
