Trusts and Estates

D'Agostino, Levine, Landesman & Lederman, LLP has a diverse trust and estates practice, encompassing estate planning, trust and estate administration and related tax issues. We specialize in issues important to high-net-worth individuals from all industries, including owners of closely-held businesses, real estate investors, corporate executives and venture capital and private equity investors.

Our estate-planning attorneys prepare plans to help clients minimize estate and gift taxes, keep assets available to pay taxes and other obligations after death, ensure the orderly transfer of business interests and protect business interests from creditors. As part of this service, we prepare all types of wills and trusts, family limited partnerships, charitable foundations and related documents.

On the international level, we represent individual U.S. clients with foreign assets, foreign spouses or both. We also provide planning advice to foreign clients residing in the U.S. and foreign clients who own U.S. property.

Our firm administers estates, providing a wide range of related services. Our estate administration attorneys prepare probate documents; arrange for the management and distribution of assets; prepare estate, gift and fiduciary tax returns; and settle the estate's account if disputes arise, we are available to represent our clients in estates and trusts litigation.
