Estate Planning

White Plains, NY Estate Planning Lawyers

Estate PlanningA natural concern as we age is what will happen to our assets after we are gone. It is comforting to know that our affairs are in order and will be cared for after we have moved on. As such, estate planning is one of the most integral aspects of elder law. If done correctly, a fully planned estate can be one less burden for an individual’s family to deal with after his or her passing. When planned poorly, however, an estate can cause hardship and strife, and even tear a family apart in the trying times of coping with a loved one’s death.

Client Reviews
Last year I was injured in an accident, and for the first time, needed the advice of an attorney regarding how to proceed. I was referred to Thomas Gallivan through a family member who is a lawyer in Massachusetts. I am beyond pleased with how Thomas handled my case. He was knowledgeable, professional, and although the case was not as straightforward as some, he used every resource to ensure a positive outcome. Thomas communicated with me regularly and I felt completely informed and confident in his ability. He expertly negotiated a fair settlement that I was very happy with. The entire experience was extremely positive, during a stressful time for me. Thank you Thomas. Melanie
