Estate Planning for New York & New Jersey Communities.

Valerie Zaloom Buccino is experienced in helping clients protect their legacy through careful estate planning. We can help you arrange your affairs so that your wishes are expressed and carried out.

You can make your own choices in matters affecting your life and eventual death. Estate planning is not only arranging what you want to happen after your death. It is also planning for the possibility that you may need assistance during your lifetime due to an illness, injury, or disability and encompasses all areas of your life: health care, personal care, legal affairs and financial affairs. A well-prepared plan will protect you and your family by allowing you to appoint people you trust to help make decisions regarding your private and personal matters should you no longer be able to do so for yourself and will ease the burden on those closest to you.

We are committed to the protection of our clients and their assets. We work with you to prepare health care directives designed according to your specific wishes and detailed powers of attorney, giving maximum or limited powers to assure that you can be taken care of as the need arises. We draft Wills and various necessary trusts to not only enable you to provide for your loved ones, but also to protect them from too much wealth too soon and to allow their money to be distributed for a college education or towards their first home.

We know that Estate Planning is often something we put off. There are big decisions to make and you may envision the process as being time consuming and unpleasant. While thinking about some of the issues involved can sometimes be difficult, working with a lawyer who understands and streamlines the process, will help you look to the future with confidence.
