Futterman & Lanza, LLP is pleased to be assisting another client from Levittown, NY with the estate and trust administration issues of a recently deceased family member.
Someone named as executor for a decedent has a great deal of responsibility – to the estate, creditors of the estate, and to the beneficiaries of the estate. The duties of the executor are known as fiduciary duties; the responsibility is the highest level of responsibility in the law. Some of these responsibilities include, but are not limited to, filing final tax returns, protecting assets of the estate, settling the debts of the decedent, and paying the intended beneficiaries of the estate.
If you have been named an executor in a last will and testament or trustee of a revocable or irrevocable trust, set up an appointment to discuss your duties so you behave within the letter of the law and can conclude your job with confidence and security.
Futterman & Lanza, LLP has offices in Smithtown, NY and Valley Stream, NY and clients throughout Suffolk, Nassau, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, Richmond, New York, Westchester, and Rockland Counties. Futterman & Lanza, LLP concentrates its practice to Elder Law, Medicaid Planning, Medicaid Applications, Estate Planning, Probate, Estate Taxes, and Estate Administration.
