Kingston Estate Planning Lawyer

Rusk, Wadlin, Heppner & Martuscello, LLP is dedicated to helping elder clients and their families address financial, aging, and health-related needs through careful and comprehensive estate planning. Our firm is the oldest and one of the most respected in the Hudson Valley. You can trust our Kingston estate planning lawyers to treat you with dignity and compassion.

Estate Planning Considerations for the Elderly

Elder law is a very broad area of law that can include any legal issue facing older adults and their families. There’s estate planning, which includes the creation of wills, trusts, and other documents to control the distribution of assets, as well as long-term healthcare planning and securing health and income benefits, such as Medicaid and Social Security.

Our attorneys practice across a spectrum of estate planning and elder law topics, including Medicaid, asset protection, and nursing home abuse, so you can expect to come to one of our offices and receive comprehensive advice and representation. If your concern involves a conflict or dispute, we also handle probate and will contests.

Planning for Incapacity

The goal of planning for incapacity is to protect your rights and interests now and in the future, and to save money for you and your family by reducing the likelihood of expensive court proceedings. We feel—and our clients agree—that it is almost always better to make important decisions in advance than to allow a court to make them for you down the road.

Two of the primary means for planning for incapacity are creating a trust and/or naming a power of attorney. With a trustee or power of attorney who can manage your affairs when you are unable to, you can be confident that your chosen representative will oversee your care and make decisions based on your values and wishes.

At Rusk, Wadlin, Heppner & Martuscello, LLP, we understand that aging can be very difficult for individuals and families, but the appropriate estate planning documents can ensure your property and health care are handled exactly as you want them to be. Our goal is to give you peace of mind, so that you can focus on enjoying each day to the fullest, rather than worrying about future what-ifs.
